Taken in my garden (yard) in the UK near Portsmouth on the South Coast. The goldfinches come regularly, but this little bird joined them at times. Other times it was alone, I would love to know what it is.

Yes, one or the other! Very difficult to be sure, since the two most important features, the wing length and the legs, are hidden. However a suite of other, minor features make me pretty confident that this is a Willow Warbler.

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

Beauties Duane. There seems to have been a huge increase in Redtailed Hawk numbers up here this year.

Two replies that agree. The consensus is a willow warbler. Now I know.
