That looks like a lesser goldfinch. They are in small flocks on the canals here right now. We have RC kinglets in winter and they are so jumpy, only landing once in a while on our suet feeders. They have a distinct eyering, too.
This bird visited my backyard fountain an hour ago. Lots of orange on breast, distinctive wing bars, and a hint of brown on throat, with small blackish spots on top of head. I first thought "warbler," but now I think kinglet. Any thoughts?
