The Siskin (carduelis spinus)
The siskin is a lively little bird with a forked tail. It is a colourful member of the finch family with a distinctive yellow stripe on its black wings. With a liking for conifer, alder and birch seeds, siskins will also visit gardens to take advantage of any nuts left in bird feeders. They are quite acrobatic using their feet to bring hanging food into reach.
Managed to get this one some while back but seem to have overlooked him. Thought I should give him a chance. Hope you like.
Enormous thanks for the attention given to the Snipe. I am most appreciative.
