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.

Make sure to stay until the end on this one! This morning a Ruffed Grouse seemed unconcerned about the burry calls of Evening Grosbeaks surrounding the Ontario FeederWatch Cam, but once a Blue Jay belts out a loud call, the grouse does its best roadrunner impression and zooms off the platform. Thanks to our cam host for catching the moment!

Red crossbill at feeder in Canada

A unique visitor stopped by the Ontario FeederWatch Cam this afternoon – a female Red Crossbill! Unlike males, female Red Crossbills aren’t actually red at all. Instead, the greenish-yellow plumage on their chest and rump is paired with a blackish-brown coloration on the wings and tail-feathers. This female does, however, showcase the species namesake crossbill – a thick, curved bill with crossed tips. These stocky finches use their specialized bills to pry open the cones of conifers and expose the nutritious seeds inside!

Thanks to our keen-eyed cam host, Tammie Hache, for the spot!
