Bill, we have the same combination of birds raiding our feeders...yellow finches and pine siskins. (If I'm ID'ing them correctly! :-))

Nice shot but one thing, the bird on the far right...either it's my trifocals or something odd is going on with it's beak. ?

It's a savannah sparrow and the color of its beak is pale.

:oops: Oops! I meant the *other* far right...gold finch on the end. It looks like the bird has four beaks or either there's another bird hid behind it. :)

Ok, I'll have to look up the Savannah Sparrow...resembles a Pine Sisken, but...I'm no birder. ;)

I wondered. It has a black oil sunflower in its beak. They grab them and "maneuver" them around to open them.
