John B Posted May 4, 2022 Share Posted May 4, 2022 The small bird was spotted today in Merrill, WI around 2:00 PM. It was about the size and color of a sparrow, but much slimmer, with a longer slim beak. The color was various shades of gray/brown/black but the most distinctive marking was a bright yellow patch about 3/4” in diameter at the top base of tail feathers/lower back. The bird perched in a crabapple tree and then flew to the ground and appeared to snatch a bug and then flew back up to perch in another small tree. I have searched several field guides with no luck. Any help identifying the bird will be appreciated John 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
