Not sure those are juveniles, I'd suspect both adult females, but tricky to tell them part icon_thumright

In over twenty years in Weymouth we never saw either Siskins or Redpolls in the garden. Here we have both, a pair of Siskins appeared last Feb and during the summer had two broods of five, when they arrived at once they couldn't all get on the feeder as the Glodfinches were there as well.
Back in my college days before 2005 year I saw these strange birds that came in my house in groups and stayed for few hours and disappeared when they saw cats. It only comes when there is rain and fruits on my curry leaves tree. These birds are very shy.
