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!
Nesting Habits of the Pine Siskin
The plate or saucer-shaped nest of the Pine Siskin is constructed of twigs, leaves, grass, lichen and other similar items. It is delicately lined with feathers, moss, fur and other soft materials.
Pine Siskins mate and remain together. The female Pine Siskin sits on the hidden nest, having lain between 2-6 greenish blue eggs that are flecked with small brown spots.
During the 13 day incubation time, the male Pine Siskin will feed the female who only leaves the nest for a few moments at a time. This devotion will continue for the first few days after the eggs hatch.
Once hatched, the Pine Siskin babies will become fledglings in 14-15 days. Pine Siskins may have two broods during a breeding season.
