Phil,

Thanks for posting that. I wasn't aware of more than incidental nesting reports 
after that release. Also, in the other direction, European Goldfinch seems to 
be established in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, with individuals being seen around 
that area.


So, Bob's bird might be an escaped cage bird, but it could have found its way 
here from the other new nesting areas. It's definitely not "countable" by 
American Birding Association standards, but it's certainly biologically 
interesting (and beautiful!). Putting in eBird reports for these potentially 
establishing species is important. IF they become established, we will have a 
record of how and when it happened.


Thanks, Bob, for putting the word out.


Best,


Kevin

 Here is a link to the eBird article on released songbirds birds in the Chicago
