This bird stayed still on a branch near bird feeders for around 10 minutes before flying away. Is this an early baby?
No interactions present.
Certainly not a young Greenfinch, born this year, as that would be quite heavily streaked. The plumage is difficult to see in detail, but it looks like a male or possibly an old female.

Birds often fluff their feathers up to keep warm, it seems that is what this bird is doing
Just click away and be happy
Thank you for your comments.
This photo was taken during a mild day when other birds were not fluffed up. This greenfinch was also still for 10 minutes before flying off, could this be an ill bird, with trichomonosis or another illness?
