Google tells me it's a Gouldian finch.
Is it in Australia?
And it's Australian apparently
Looks like one of these but they're Aussie natives: Gouldian finch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Though it has got a festival wristband on, maybe it came over to catch a few shows.
As Manter says Gouldian finch.
Looks old, possibly a pet that's escaped?
This is the sort of anomaly you get when you elect a Marxist Muslim-hugger to lead the Labour Party. Watch out for wolves lying down with lambs in Bedford any day soon.
looks punk to me. The Lesser Spotted Punk. Known for warbling three chords heavily and nutting other avians
I think it is lost
a two headed goat born unto a woman in nether heyford. It's the intereggenum! world turned upside down
I googled something like white and green bird with a bit of yellow and an orange head. Nothing clever and technical I'm afraid! It just came up as the third picture
I knew it was a finch and you still Googled faster
so it's DEFINITELY a Gouldian finch?
Is it a baby one?
Does the tag mean it has escaped from an aviary or has just been recorded by ornithologists?
This BBC story that came up reckons the red-headed ones are the most aggressive: Finches' colour shows personality
ETA: this pic there really looks like the one in OU's photo
The Google-fu is strong here
Doesn't look like it
More likely the former in south London
I really don't like birds now . Not since I found out they're descended from dinosaurs...feathered lizard monsters . I used to not mind them but after I saw Jurassic park I started to look at them and the way they walk about and do those jerky head movements in a very different light .
No, they're wrong uns .
It doesn't look young, looks quite big for a finch, but I've never seen anything like that one in the UK, a bit of research says they aren't found in the wild here, they are endangered, but popular as a pet in the UK due to there colourfulness
Is it an escapee from a dread Fritzlesque aviary? Does it needs to be indulged/rescued?
Winter is coming.
Eaten I'd say
Harsh. Sins of the fathers and all that.
Sins of the feathers
But if you think about it, they switched over once . What if they do it again and switch back ? We'll be fucked .
Not if we eat them while they are small
