Bird of the Week – Pine Siskin

Alaska is at the northerly limit of the range of the Pine Siskin. Even smaller than the Common Redpoll, it’s a member of finch family and a big fan of bird feeders.

Pine Siskins are gregarious; you find them commonly in large flocks. The yellow in the primaries and heavily streaked breast, with the buffy wingbars, make this a pretty easy bird to recognize.
