Mystery bird at the restaurant window of algonquin inn

this bird arrived yesterday at the feeders outside the restaurant window of algonquin inn, and re appeared today.
so we asked Ron Tozer a retired naturalist from Algonquin Park to id the bird for us,as we had looked through all of our field guides and could not place it.
well the mystery is solved here is Ron's reply

Definitely appears to be a partially albinistic Pine Siskin.
Dark (rather than pink) eye and some colour in the plumage
suggests partial albinism rather than a pure albino,

another view, not something you find everyday in Muskoka
