a very unique and interesting sighting! does the body shape and beak look like the other gold finches?

By Cheryl on 5/9/2015 6:09:44 PM

Yes, the body and shape and beak are identical to the goldfinches. Also, this one was with a male goldfinch, so I can only assume it's one.

Very pretty. :) It's a leucistic goldfinch.
