I am in Arkansas. I have a bird at the feeder about the size and shape of a small warbler. The head, throat and upper back are yellow. The rest of the back is black/white stripish The underside is a pale yellow/ buff. There is white on the tail. Any suggestion of what this is?
Secondly, a flock of bird came through in late afternoon. They were small 5 inches or so) and shaped like finches. Back was black. Throat and chest a very bright yellow. They flew in, nested in a tree, and 10 minutes later flew out. They did not match any finch pictures I could find.
I am new at birding.
thanks for any help
