A Subtle Siskin Yellow for Mellow Yellow Monday

I think of Pine siskins as quiet, non disruptive sweet, delicate looking birds,
what attracts me to them is their lovely colouring, otherwise some may view them as plain drab looking little birds.demure.. they have surprising yellow tinge about them. You would never refer to siskins by saying," there goes a yellow bird!" Seldom large splashes of yellow are seen, butinstead just a quiet slash of yellow striping on their wings. In the photo above yellow can be seen in their underwings as this sisking pushes off from a table to take flight.
in the photo above the yellow seems to have been captured in more concentrated areas


the yellow in the photo above appears to be more subtle but it is there!

Got pictures with yellow that you would like to share? Why not post them on Mellow Yellow Monday, a delightful meme that focuses on the colour yellow?Just click here:http://mellowyellowmonday.blogspot.com/ to access this meme

You are really getting some fun photos with that bird cam. What a sinister looking grackle in your new header. If I were a small bird I would fly when I saw him coming!

They have colors like peacocks. What beautiful birds. There is lots more color to them than just the yellow. Wonderful captures. genie
