EUROPEAN GOLDFINCH, MOUNT EDEN, AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

   Even though we can't see this birds head and face,  we can still  ID this bird as a European Goldfinch (also just called Goldfinch) by its conspicuous yellow bars on its black wings, white rump and abdomen, brown upperparts  (if you look closely you can see a small portion of the brown back) and black tail tipped with white. 
   The European Goldfinch is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 716.
