  1. @Metaquatic thanks for the tip! Finally found it! You were right! Do they always travel in packs like the picture?
  2. @MerMaeve @RobinHood the sketch was not to far off! Nutmeg finch who would have thought?
  3. @lonesome55dove no it sure was not. I am glad too it has been bugging me for a while now and I was amazed that no one ever seemed to guess this bird when I mentioned the spots/scales. I guess it is not that common?
  4. @EcogisAnd they always show up like that! Typical finch behavior I guess but there are usually between 30 to 50 at the feeder everyday!
  5. Ok everyone I have a picture! Long awaited but I work two full time jobs so having the time to sit outdoors with my camera by the feeder is rare. They are not the best pictures but based on what some else posted I am thinking nutmeg finch?
  6. Also tried house finch and that is not it either. The whole head and neck are solid red and I mean solid, not a hint of any other color present. It is head turning red for sure.
  7. Always in a tree, never on the ground. They do eat at the feeders and they are always in a group never alone. I will try and get a picture and post but whenever I see them I usually don’t have my phone on me and by the time I go back in the house and get it they have been startled and fly off.

  9. Hi Everyone. I am trying to identify a bird I have seen here over the years in my backyard. Unfortunately I do not have a picture but I cannot for the life of me find this bird anywhere on the internet. I just saw it yesterday in my tree around 8 am. It is a very small bird, a little larger than a hummingbird but smaller than a cardinal. It is a slim bird with a short beak. It has spotted grayish feathers and its most distinctive feature is that it has a red/maroon head and neck. It is a very vibrant and solid red/maroon, no other colors mixed in (and I do mean solid color). It travels in a flock as there are usually at least 20 to 30 near my feeder when I see them. They are usually here early in the morning or more often late in the evening around 4 or 5 pm. In the summertime it is later than that. I have not heard any distinctive noises from it but we have a lot of birds. It is definitely NOT a woodpecker or any other common bird that you might think of. I cannot even find a picture of this bird on the internet using Google which is weird because the entire head and neck are solid red. It is possible it is a migratory bird and not necessarily local to the Pensacola Florida area all year long. Any help would be appreciated!
