  1. Not the best photo, but it's the only time I had a definite look at a male. These buggers are very similar to the much more common Hooded Siskin, and the best clue to identify them is the very short yellow speculum on the wing (much shorter than in Hooded), with essentially all black tertials (which normally have prominent white edging on Hooded).
