Mystery Bird

I saw a cute little yellow bird outside my window a few days ago that sort of looked like this guy. Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo but this is the closest one I've found online.

It was smaller than a sparrow, with a tiny plump body and small yellow head with brown and white stripes and some yellow on its chest. There were some other birds with it that were mostly just brown, no yellow.


  1. The other ones were probably females. It wasn't a goldfinch? I don't really know the common NW birds as well as the NE ones. I'd never seen that other one you saw on campus (not the hawk).

  2. I bet it WAS a goldfinch!! i just looked them up online and I think that was it. Thanks for the tip!!
