Hi Aynsley,

Welcome to BirdForum!

Someone has lost their pet . . . that's a Yellow-fronted Canary (Serinus mozambicus), a popular cagebird originally from Africa

Hi Aynsley,

On behalf of Admina nd the Moderators welcome to Bird Forum

Just as well Michael was about as that one would have had me stumped as well. Makes a change seeing something exotic on the feeders.
