ID Help Please

G'Day, I spotted this bloke yesterday and managed to get a reasonable shot, but I can't establish what he is.
Help!

Hi John

Welcome to the group. I am familiar with Yarra as a road sign south from Goulburn. I live in Robertson and drive to Canberra regularly.

Your bird is a European Goldfinch. They have a yellow stripe in the wing when they fly.

Check out the bird books, up the back end, which is where most introduced species are usually placed.

Your photo is very nice.
