    Are these Pine Siskins?

    They may have been at my feeders a couple days before I took these shots.  If so I probably thought they were small, juvenile House Finches when I glanced out there.

    It took me a long time to come up with Pine Siskin.  When I tried using the Search feature on What Bird, the closest I could come was a juvenile Yellow-rumped Warbler.  But the bill was wrong and no eye-ring and the yellow was in the wings instead of on the sides.

    I finally went by brute force and began looking through every perching and clinging bird in California and finally came to my conclusion of it being a Pine Siskin.  Any agreement?
