Friend discovered this wounded bird in his Oakland, CA, backyard. We're both amateur birders, but neither can identify it. We agree that it's a juvenile.

No problem at all Steve . . . glad I could help it was a fun "research project" I am a little less than certain but at the very least it is a good guess LOL

We will see if anyone who is more familiar with West coast birds has a better suggestion . . . cough . . . cough Judy from Seatle . . . cough . . . cough LOL

I searched for "Pine Siskin Juvenile", and found a few very close matches, so, for now, I'm going with that! Thanks, GaryE!

Pine Siskin? NEW
by: GaryE

My first thought was an immature American Goldfinch but that was a fail . . . I checked out similar species and came up with the Pine Siskin

I am less than certain but it could be an immature Pine Siskin
