The Eurasian siskin (Spinus spinus, vihervarpunen in Finnish) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. It is also called the European siskin, common siskin or just siskin. It is very common throughout Europe and Asia. It is found in forested areas, both coniferous and mixed woodland where it feeds on seeds of all kinds, especially of alder and conifers.
I photographed these siskins in my backyard in Mäntsälä, Finland.
