Siskin saves my Day

By tonyguitar
No gulls, no ducks, no geese and almost no birds today. All the gulls and most sea birds are away off Parksville filling up on herring. Just about to go home and this little yellow sunshine bird appears on a log and vanishes. I thought my chance had gone. Then five minutes later he shows up again and gives me a few chances for getting his personality on camera.

We had a lot of birds today, no sissiness -- but some I had never seen at feeders! This one is very dear!

A very cute little bird Tony. I've been away so I have no idea what we've got bird wise here. Must go see tomorrow.

Sangram;...Thank you for your generous Award. Delighted to accept your UA just before closing down. Hope this bird is the first of many new ones coming in after our very cold snow fall. Up from =2 yesterday to +15 today. TG

Black fronted warbler or Audubon's warbler seems more likely for this little bird.
What do you think?. Siskin photos seem not to match very well. TG

Gary;....Thank you for your Award. I got one similar to this three years ago but that one was blue and yellow. Some birders will give a positive ident name yet two birders will sometimes give a different ident with the same conviction. Still your Award is the real reward, regardless of what this little beauty happens to be. TG
