LATE NEWS: It's a boy!
I wasn't able to post Murray's great European Goldfinch photos until now. [Every once in a while my computer seems to follow a different drummer] But here they are, as splendid as ever. [And don't forget to click on the photo to enlarge.]
He is a very beautiful European Goldfinch.
I did not see him with the American Goldfinches that frequent a feeder bag.
I have read that "On males the red on the face extends to the edge of the eyes,on females it does not" so
I'm guessing a male.
