A 'MULE' in the Garden

Many thanks to Colm Southern (and others) who commented upon the identification of the finch below which has been visiting a local garden. According to Colm this bird is known as a Mule (a cross between a british bird finch and a canary) with this particular bird is a result of a mating from a male Blue Siskin to a female White Canary (hence the colouring) - in the cage bird fancy this bird would be termed a "BLUE SISKIN MULE".
