could someone identify this bird for me please.
I had a pair that were green/yellow in colour, had two dark stripes on head, on throat and half way down belly had dark spotted stripes. Belly was white. More on the body appearance and size of a small nuthatch (not the colour). thin white mark circling the dark brown eye and thin sharp pointed beak. legs were white to transparent. I could see a red vein down the leg.
I have never seen these birds in these parts before. Bracebridge Ontario
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
