YES - certainly a male siskin. Congratulations - it's exciting to see a "new" bird, but if it's on your own feeders it's very special! Banana!

Congratulations! Good photos in that sense that marks (like yellow wing bar) are well visible.

Siskins are more easily heard than seen, so this might not be your first one Wink
