The other day I finally found a group of Siskins. They have been rare this winter.
But now they posed nicely.  On top, a male, then a female wondering what I´m doing. And finally, try to see them., there are three in the image.

This was a tough birding day. It started out with sunshine. So I went. The mandarin female has been on this location for some weeks but I never managed to see her. Today I was alone and took the challenge to go to the opposite side of the pond. Which means going between a stream and the fence with a djungel like bush forest to cut my way through. But I made it. Still when I spotted her it was through the fence and reed. And the sun was long gone. It started to snow. I had seen a chair in a bush, I fetched it and climbed up. I got a much better view that way. I would not call thee images "good quality" but I got her.

I made an art of one of the images but it is posted in my main blog. HERE if you want to see it.

A colorful favourite :) A male and not even a small twig destroys the image.
