Saw this bird sitting by my bird feeder yesterday evening. During the day this feeder is constantly occupied by goldfinches so at first thought it might be a fledgling. On closer inspection (it let me walk right up to it) I could see that it was dark brown and a bit ruffled. As I couldn't see it's eye colour and because it didn't fly away i thought it might be blind but i think it just had its eye shut. I also noticed it had been ringed. Apologies for the poor photo but only had mobile phone to hand before it flew away. Any suggestions on what this could be?
