She has been feeding huge numbers of Goldfinches and this little guy turned up today while she was doing Feederwatch counts. She is allowing visitors to observe the feeders. She has posted a few pictures on the Lab of O Facebook page. I can provide contact info off list. Janet Akin, Seneca Castle -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

Gives me hope that one of these beauts will someday show up in southern Ontario at a reasonable driving distance!
