A rather difficult bird for me. The fact is that they appear here mainly in the spring, when the snow has melted. You can hear mating songs of males and calls of females somewhere in the upper tiers of trees.
If you turn on the voices of these birds on the speaker, then the birds will hear, but will not fly close. They are very careful. Females will not come at all, and males will come, but they will keep at long distances.
With the onset of late spring or summer, these birds are no longer visible or audible. Siskins live mainly in coniferous forests, so in our mixed ones they spend only the mating season. However, there is one place in the forest where there are a small number of conifers, and every year I hear one siskin among the branches.
