- Comments: "First reported this winter on January 25, 2019 by Tom Edell: "At least one previously reported here, but this is the first report of two this winter. Both showed golden color in the backs and wings, wing tips that barely extended beyond the tail tip, dark ear spots on the face, and smallish all dark bills. One of these is most likely an adult back for its third winter."
