once again, sorry for the picture quality. they were right above my head and the white sky was the only available background so the birds are kind of silhouettey. Hopefully at least one of them is clear enough for you to make a call

thank you:)

The streaky breast and pointy beak in the first picture looks like a Pine Siskin, but wait for some more opinions.

Looks good for a flock of Pine siskins. I did not see any redpoll's in those pictures so I am staying with just a flock of siskins.
