Pine Siskin

I had one Pine Siskin visit my thistle feeder today.  These birds come down from Canada in the winter months if there is a shortage of food (seeds from pine cones).  Supposedly they move in flocks, which would be fun to see, but I only had a solitary visitor.  Still, I was happy to see it and get a photo before it headed off for other feeders!
