She was feeding at my backyard feeder.
Very good reason!
I have about 5-6 male Goldfinchs feeding at the same location, that is why I felt it was a female.
Thanks Scott - better!
I'm going to throw out another suggestion based on the yellow patch on the wings: Pine Siskin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_Siskin... http://www.wbu.com/chipperwoods/photos/p.... The second link actually has a siskin and a goldfinch side-by-side for comparison.
Possibly? But would like to throw this into the ring: Bairds Sparrow Ammodramus bairdii (some have a yellowish tinge) Unless you had the male Goldfinch nearby I would question the ID. (with respect David)
