Very good reason!

DavidFarrar 12 years ago

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. 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)
