Seeing a common bird with an uncommon look always catches my attention. Two weeks ago, I came across this yellowish Purple Finch on Blackhead Road. The yellow really stood out. I looked it up and found this article about this occurrence: http://www.sibleyguides.com/2012/07/a-yellow-purple-finch-in-ontario/
The closest I have seen to the yellow look was this finch photographed in December 2011. I thought it was quite yellow at the time, but now that I have seen the one pictured above, it really isn't yellow at all.
