[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Pine Siskin (Carduelis pinus)

Conservation Status

Although considered Washington's most common finch, the Pine Siskin has suffered a significant annual decline in population since 1966, according to the Breeding Bird Survey. Due to the irruptive nature of this species, populations vary widely from year to year, and trends can be difficult to interpret. Parasitism by Brown-headed Cowbirds can have a significant impact on Pine Siskin productivity, and forest fragmentation has increased their contact with cowbirds. Maintaining large tracts of coniferous forest will help keep this bird common.

Salut Mircea,
Qu'elle belle capture de ce Tarin. Les détails, la prise de vue, l'exposition et la composition sont superbes comme d'habitude. Les notes sont bien intéressantes. C'est la première année qu'ils sont légion chez moi. J'ai mis des graines de chardon à la mangeoire et maintenant, ils sont en très grand nombre. L'année dernière, j'avais aussi mis du chardon et je l'ai ai vu juste une fois. En espérant que la population continuera de s'accroîte. Merci!
Claudine
