A local birder recently located a brambling in a park near here. It's a Eurasian member of the finch family native to the British Isles and Europe. Quite rare in the western, lower 48, but not unheard of, apparently. I went out to the described location and there were about fifteen other birders anxiously awaiting it's appearance. Didn't have to wait long, but just about the time it appeared my phone started ringing with a real estate emergency - trying to sell my house. Got a couple of shots, but nothing great at all. Didn't have time and the polite thing to do was stay behind a rope barrier not to intrude upon the bird. I would have gone back later in the week for a better shot, but didn't have time, and folks stopped seeing the bird. I might still go look for it.
