Another birds-eye view

Not the family in the bird house this time, but a little pine siskin on the feeder at the front of the house (this photo taken through the window):

Pine siskin at feeder

I could spend hours watching all the birds this time of year.  A beautiful male finch, 80% reds and pinks and purples, was at the feeder today but flew away when I grabbed the camera.  The goldfinches flew through here last week too, brilliant yellow and shining black.  Mating season brings out such amazing colours in the male birds.
