Adult male Siskin

This stunning male Siskin perched briefly in front of a hide.  Some attractive seed feeders are placed adjacent to this stump.  I had to wait for nearly three hours today before this male landed briefly.  I'm hoping for better light tomorrow as there are scores of birds - I just need time and patience.


  1. Lovely photo Steve, shame about the bling, but you take what you can get in bird photography!!

  2. Steve - do you have photos that enable you to read the ring number? would be interesting to find out where it was ringed.
