  1. Two great shots! I haven't seen any pine siskins this year.
    Nice reflections in your goldeneye shot.

  2. Love the Goldeneye!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. sweet! we get siskins here but have never seen a goldeneye in person.

  4. Härliga bilder! Fast någon vår är det ju förstås inte ännu! :) Grönsiska har jag inte sett någon än i år och inte heller någon knipa, om jag tänker efter.

  5. We have pine siskins at our feeders as they often fly with American goldfinches. I have never seen a Eurasian siskin before though. Common goldeneyes are common here too. :))

  6. Great photos. The first one is especially beautiful with the sun shining on the bird and the snow.

  7. Pretty Siskin and I love the Goldeneye! Great birds and photos!

  8. Flotte bilder til dette temaet.
    Du finner de nydeligste fugler!

  9. Hej igen!
    Den vita ankan såg jag både lör- och söndag här hos oss.
    Jag förstod nog inte riktigt hur jag ska kunna se att det är en hane? /Pia

  10. Wonderful duck!

    The number of posts to WBW is now regularly past 50 - so it can be a little time consuming!

    Cheers and thanks for the link to WBW.
