UK dead bird ID confirmation


Question

Hello,

 

I am sure that this unfortunate soul is a goldfinch. Does anybody know if it's a male or female, or young/old etc. ?

Wildlife isn't my expertise.

It collided with a van I was driving whilst in the Welsh valleys this week 😞

It's an adult goldfinch. Male and females are pretty identical so take your pick

I was driving along a fast dual carriageway some time ago in a different car to the one I have now when a Wood pigeon flew across in front of me.

 

It was expensive to repair the front end.

Yes, repairing the front end of a pigeon is no job for an amateur...

Looks like a goldfinch, sadly I found a dead baby one this morning it had flown into the patio doors, note to self.......do not clean the windows too well....
