What a pretty setting for this sweet bird-not often photographed. Looking perky, as they most certainly are.

A click for the uncompressed view shows the beautiful detail you captured in the siskin, and the wildflower setting is a lovely enhancement!

These Pine Siskins are actually quite common in my area.  I photographed this one at a friends house about 20 miles south of my own home near the South Puget Sound area.  There were literally 100 or more of these birds at his house.  They typically hang out with American Goldfinches.  An opportunity to get a lot of yellow plumage.
