The Pine Siskin and Crossbills in the Island Garden
The Pine Siskin (Carduelis pinus)
There are many of these little fellows in our yard. Seems like they enjoy our bird baths and feeders. They are small birds but certainly not pushovers just look at the following pictures:
Always on look out who is coming to the feeder
One would not want to argue with this one
Telling the crossbill that he is not welcome at this feeder.?
Now I am really mad at you!
Pine Siskin the Great protector
The feeder is full no room for this little one
Waiting patiently my turn
This pine siskin was intrigue by the bubling water on top of the fountain.
Now, that was fun
Curious baby crossbill
Pine siskin and finches
This bird comes to our feeder but I do not know who it isS
Such is life
