QCould some­one ID this bird which I pho­tographed on a feeder with a red­poll? Ron Weeks

AIt’s a fe­male Siskin, as shown by the green­ish colour­ing, streaky plumage and the lack of the black cap which is typ­i­cal of the male bird. These small finches are of­ten found with red­polls, both in Alders and birches, and on feed­ers, where both species are fond of black niger seed.
