New Jersey Common Chaffinch

This morning in the wind and subfreezing temperatures I was able to get a short look at the Common Chaffinch coming to a feeder in Union Township, NJ.  The bird was coming in every half hour or so to the seed under the feeder.  It was only visible for a few minutes when I was there, and I only managed these poor blurry photos through my binoculars with my Android phone camera.  Better photos are online here.  Bird location map is here.  Viewing instructions from the homeowner are on Jerseybirds here and here.  Special thanks to the homeowners for making this bird viewing available.  Please be respectful of these viewing guidelines, which include no weekend visits.

Wow! Common as houses in Europe but what a major tick for North America!
