[Tweeters] Help ID Pine Siskin

Hello all,

I'm new to the list and have been receiving your posts and enjoying them

I took pictures of a strange little bird that was at our feeder most of the
day (in the south of West Seattle, Arbor Heights). It seems to be a Pine
Siskin, but isn't shaped like any I've ever seen before. She pokes out in
all strange directions and even her wings seem oddly placed. She seemed
very quiet and lethargic, spending a lot of time just resting at the feeder.
She didn't seem to get excited when I went out and got very close to her.

I've put three pictures on my flickr acct. One of them is with a
Chestnut-backed Chickadee for comparison. Use the 'previous' button to see
the others.


Any thoughts would be appreciated,


Terry P

West Seattle
