Siskin Variation

Before heading off to see the Cave Swallows Saturday, a group of 4 Pine Siskins visited the feeders.  One bird in particular, piqued my interest. It was warmer than the other Siskins and had a yellow wash on the underparts, rump and wings including the secondaries and tips of the greater coverts. I was able to get some shots of the bird which looks good (although low on the spectrum) for a Green(ish) Siskin. Please feel free to comment.
