Goldfinch with pigment problems...

While doing some butterfly work in SK - a goldfinch that really wasn't all that yellow. The photos aren't great, but it was an odd bird with a mix of white/gray and pastel yellow areas...

I wonder if it was a problem with the birds diet during molt? Or partial leucisim? Or? 

Poor photos - looked more striking in flight
