Hi Barr1e. It's a juvenile Goldfinch. They look rather odd without their red faces. I have a couple visiting my garden at the moment.

Thank you. We have seen several in our garden recently but I was too embarrassed to ask.

Juveniles are always tricky. It's why many birders give up during the breeding season

Re: Bird ID please

Constantly have a stream of at least a dozen or so of them on the feeders in my garden. They are by far the most numerous bird that visit us and have been for some years now
