"One would assume that this is last year's youngster that has not molted. (Note the old, damaged tail feathers and dark eyes.) It's even possible that this bird is older and/or it may never molt because of some sort of…"

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

The Alcids returned to the island after a complete absence on and around the island for 6 days. In typical early-season fashion, they rafted early Wednesday afternoon and came ashore in strength just before 16:00 hrs. This time PUFFINS dominated and birds occupied all parts of the colonies, albeit a bit sparsely in the most recently colonized areas. As well as being in strength, the birds stayed overnight, in spite of a SHARP SHINNED HAWK that repeatedly sent the seabirds scurrying for cover.…See More

"I wonder if your mystery bird might have been a female Pine Siskin? They can be very nondescript, the size is right, and they feed and associate with Goldfinches and similar species."

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

The yesterday's freezing rain and adverse gales, along with the overnight tempest, wasn't particularly conducive to migration but a few birds seemed to move as the wind shifted briefly a bit to the west. I'm looking at a bright male ROSE BREASTED GROSBEAK, feeding on the patio.It wasn't here yesterday. I've also been watching a CATBIRD bathing in a rain puddle. I suspect that it's a single individual that's been hanging around for several days.It's exceptionally flighty and ignores oranges and…See More

MACHIAS SEAL ISLAND REPORT

Migrants are showing themselves in abundance, as indicated by the reports coming in fast and wide-spread. Here on the island the Sparrows continue to dominate.We have had helicopter traffic in recent days and the birds erupting from the vegetation when a flight came really close pointed up how few birds we actually see. Today has produced a large flight of TREE SWALLOWS and numerous HERMIT THRUSHES. One Hermit discovered well disturbed earth under and near loads awaiting airlift and the…See More

You are welcome Ralph. I understand what you mean ... I do like the Exif info also, not for the GPS, but to understand how images are taken ... great learning tool. The GPS is nice if you have that option especially to record location of dragonfly sightings as I do. Good luck with it ... hope you get it working.
