Danville, KY, USA
This bird has been coming to my feeder to eat suet for a few days now. I’ve tried to ID it with Merlin and my bird books, but I cannot identify it! Kentucky… the most unfortunate and wonderful place to bird. Last time I couldn’t ID a yellow bird eating at my feeders, it turned out to be a female Painted Bunting!!!!! (Which are extremely rare here, in case you didn’t know.) But this bird has too slender, pointy, and dark of a beak to be a Painted Bunting. Besides, I’m pretty sure the chances of that happening again are very slim. Can anyone identify this bird?!? I’ve been at a loss for days, so ANY ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!
