The European

Pretty visitor, the European goldfinch, male.  How did it get here? Escapee? Perhaps. From where? The best I heard was that it escaped from Petco. ( They sell European goldfinches.)  Other overheard : "Pretty bird. He'd be much prettier if he was duck-size."   "I've seen 20 life birds at Petco."   Whatever- this is one gorgeous little bird, domineering, watched him face-off against other birds.
Went into feeder and didn't let any other birds inside.
More goldfinch images to come.
