Looked through two bird books but as often as not, this one is in a spring molt so one can not easily pin the correct label on him or her. Your ident skills are welcome.

No idea, Tony, but an excellent detailed capture, so it won't be longer before an expert can ID it for you. Carol

A nice shot of a female Pine Siskin, the bill shape gives it away. Hope that helps.
