Whilst at Devil Bend Reservoir yesterday, we viewed what we thought were
immature goldfinches. The yellow on the wings was just developing, bill bone
coloured and chest patchy dusky. However one of them  had quite distinctive
black and white barring all along the tail shafts. We could see no reference
to this barring  in field guides.
         Were they goldfinches?
