Subject: [VA-bird] Documentation of European Goldfinch
The European Goldfinch was on Cockpit Point Road near Dumfries VA. The spot is an E-bird hotspot.


I've loaded pictures and videos of the Goldfinch here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/73831614@N00/albums/72157668399996578


The album also includes some birds I saw at Leesylvania later in the morning.


The European Goldfinch was associating with a flock of 8 American Goldfinches and was staying close to one of the males. It was actively feeding on catkins of a tree. Other birds of note include Worm Eating Warbler, Parula, LA Waterthrush, Wood Thrush.


Leesylvania held Yellow Throated, BTB, Yellow, Palm, Parula, Pine, CYT, and W&W warblers.

For those trying to find Cockpit Point road, here is a map with a pin: https://www.google.com/maps/place/38%C2%B033'01.3%22N+77%C2%B016'45.2%22W/@38.5462943,-77.2788299,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d38.5503722!4d-77.2792161


Note, the bird was just west of the top of the hill. The security guard will make you part all the way at the west end at the circle. Not sure if the bird will stick around.
