Siskin

The Siskin is a small yellow and green finch with striking black markings on its wings and on its head (male). It can be distinguished from the Greenfinch by it's diminutive size and black wing markings.

It is found in winter throughout the UK, and then further west in summer. The birds often congregate in conifer forests, feeding on the seeds of cones, but also take the cones of deciduous Birch and Alder.

They may visit the garden in winter when their food is in short supply to take seeds, peanuts or suet from feeders.
