Pine Siskins are actually small, yellowish finches. They are remarkably outgoing with each other, often socializing at other Pine Siskins' nests. They also tend to gather in large flocks, enjoying one another's company.
During the 13 day incubation, the male Pine Siskin will feed the female who only leaves the nest for a few moments at a time!
