    Cassin's Finch?143 viewsThis bird struck me as being odd, but probably not out of the range for Cassin's Finch. It lacked a complete eye-ring, but showed a pale border on the bottom of the eye. I think the green-olive color is the most odd feature however. Any comments are welcome. Lytle Ranch, Beaver Dam Wash, Washington County, February 11, 2008.
