Hi all,
Ive attached 2 pics, the first i think is a siskin taken a couple of months ago,virtually outside the front door.
The second is a greenfinch taken in malaga a few months ago as well.
Now ive checked the Greenfinch pic against a couple already on the forum and they seem to match.
Cant see any other pics of a Siskin on the forum,am i right in thinking it is one?
Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave,

Sorry, but both are male Greenfinch. Dave, take a look at crown pattern in field guide for Siskin males, also breast marking etc., for females. Greenfinches are bulky unlike the slender and smaller Siskin.

Hope the above is helpful.
