Pine siskins at Canadian feeders

This video from Canada says about itself:

Pine Siskins Make an Uncommon Visit to Ontario FeederWatch Cam – Feb. 22, 2017

Two or Three Pine Siskins spent some time on the feeder tray of the Ontario FeederWatch Cam this afternoon. These small, brown, streaky finches have subtle yellow edgings on wings and tails. Pine Siskins can be easily confused with the Common Redpolls on cam, but they have a slender, more sharply pointed bill and are much streakier on the breast. They also lack the red forehead spot of the Common Redpolls.

Thanks to our eagle-eyed cam host for the spot!

Thanks to Perky-Pet for helping to make the Ontario FeederWatch Cam possible!

The FeederWatch cam is located in a residential neighborhood in Manitouwadge, Ontario.

Featuring pine grosbeaks as well.

  1. I have made some headway toward feeding the birds. 🙂
    I now have a bird bath and am constantly looking for an appropriate feeding tray. Though, I think I’ll have to make one out of something similar; you know, cannibalise an existing creation, so to speak! 🙂
