Siskin - Plumage

By petebfrance
More a 'record shot' than anything else. It's the first year we've had them visiting regularly having only seen them at a distance a few times before, hence the interest. Whether or not they'll continue to visit next year etc. is anybody's guess, so I wanted to get a photo that showed the plumage - this is a male (I'm fairly sure), I'll be looking out for a female of the species but they seem to be more shy.

Gthey don't visit our garden either Peter, we have to go out into the countryside to see them. It's good you got a shot showing him in a nice pose. Nicely done. Pam

I think this is more than a record shot,, he (and yes it is) looks nice and natural amongst the branches and not obscured in any way by them.
