Is this a juvenile or new bird for us?

Recommended Posts

This little guy landed on the hummingbird feeder and was trying to get to the nectar. He is just larger than a hummingbird and I"m thinking might be a juvenile pine siskin as we have dozens at our feeders right now and his wing markings resemble them... but he is very pastel green/yellow on the rest of his feathers so I'm not sure. Please let me know, Kelee Eiselein

I agree with Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Also, please include the date/location.

Fascinating behavior for a kinglet.

Yes I actually saw it both tapping into the feeder to try to get nectar or maybe the small bugs that sometimes end up floating there? ...and also using its wings to flap away a hummingbird that had come to feed, the wing flapping was quite cute and funny to watch, wish I had been able to get video!!!
