A Saffron Finch (?) lands on the ground to look for food in Brookfield, CT, April 2016.

Here’s one more shot of the Saffron Finch I saw the other day while playing baseball with my son Will. See the previous post for more information. 

At least I think it’s a Saffron Finch. That ID came from a birding expert friend of mine and many agree with him. Some, however, feel it is a finch from Africa. At any rate, it’s likely an escaped pet and not a wild rare bird for New England.
