Pine Siskin

This is another first for me to photograph. It caught my attention by way of its yellow wing stripe.

The Pine Siskin is an unpredictably nomadic little rascal. They tend to prefer pines, spruces, and other conifers. They will make a mass exodus from an area if the food supply isn't to their liking. The Pine Siskin eats conifer seeds and insects, and can be seen feeding along roadsides, lawns, and weed fields. He can be a vicious fighter at the dinner table.
