A new House Finch near Paris

Yesterday, a male House Finch was observed at a bird feeder at Champingy-sur-Marne, close to Paris. The species is confirmed by the streaked undertail coverts, and the pointed tips of the tail feathers highly suggest it is a first-winter male.
We are in contact with the house holder to ssee if the bird is coming back and if we can try a capture to sample feathers and study isotopes.
