Yesterday afternoon I was delighted to see a Pine Siskin in Bird Alley. We hadn't seen one at our feeders since December 19th, 2012. Pine Siskins have such a beautiful burst of yellow found among their feathers. Just look at the picture above to see what I mean. They are of the Finch family and often can be found at this time of year with their finch cousins; Common Redpolls and/ or Goldfinches. We had both Redpolls and Goldfinch visitors yesterday afternoon. I hope the Siskins return again today. I enjoy taking their pictures and discovering where their little flashes of yellow are hidden.

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
