Similarly, I once had a Zebra Finch in my back yard for a couple of days -
quite a fun yard bird, even if it too was certainly an escapee :)

Subject: [Tweeters] Golden Bishop in Southwest Seattle

My dad sent me an email with pic attached that he took in his back yard in
the Fauntleroy (SW Seattle) area around 29 August, of a Yellow-crowned
Bishop (aka Golden Bishop). He'd sent an email with the pic to a woman
recommended by the Audubon, who ID'd it for him and suggested it almost had
to be an escapee/release. I thought some of you might find it interesting.
A very pretty bird, bright yellow and black.
