small olive bird NEW
by: Barbara

the little bird is completely olive. Top part is darker that it's breast. Appears nearly velvety looking. Slight brown streaks along it's back & tail. It eats on the ground at the bird feeder and even hops along tree trucks eating from them. It's body and head are rounded as in the shape of a chickadee. Have not heard it's cheep or song.
I have put many hours of research into this mysterious little bird. Wish I could send a picture but don't have a proper camera for birds.

Hi Barbara, if you could describe any other markings it be very helpful. If the wings were black with a white wing bar, then it would be an American Goldfinch and most likely a female. Other than this idea, I would need more information, ie, what was it doing, what was it eating, where was it sitting, wing color and markings, flight behavior; anything you can think of would help.

You can also go online and try to ID it yourself by typing a description into your search bar: "picture of 3", olive green bird" or go to birding sites:
