The Siskin or Eurasian Siskin as it is also known, is a member of the finch family and these birds are found in many parts of Europe and Asia. Some populations migrate from the more northerly regions to swell numbers in Western and Southern European countries over winter. The male has a bright body plumage characterized by yellowy-green stripes intermixed with brown to black, and a black crown. The female has a similar yellowy-green back plumage but lacks the crown and has a grey to white streaked chest. Siskins are smaller than the similarly appearing green finch. They inhabit woods and forests where they feed on seeds and are common visitors to gardens.
There is more information about the Siskin (Carduelis spinus) available on the website of the RSPB.
