Subject: [obol] Chuck Philo's photos of the mystery finch
Hi -

Chuck had a friend send me 7 of his photos of the mystery finch from Thornton Creek.

In my opinion these are far more useful, but frankly, I am very puzzled. They are well-lit and show multiple views. I am comfortable saying they are not Pine Grosbeak, but I see a whole lot that is atypical for either House or Purple finch. In particular I have real problems reconciling the back, wing, and tail appearance with either of those species.
