So I'll close with this bird, a new one to us! We think it is a pine siskin, which is one we have never noticed in our yard before this past week. There are a few hanging around our feeders - this one must be a female, because she doesn't have any noticeable yellow on her, and then yesterday the girls took a walk with Chris around the block and found a dead one on the street that had the yellow identifying marks... otherwise, it looked like this one. So we are thinking we have IDed it correctly. Any bird nerds out there who can verify it for us? We also saw Northern Flickers for the first time a few weeks ago in our yard!
