Photo from Monday 7/29/19 when I first saw the bird and began to question it as a pacific golden

Observation details

Continuing; finally saw it in flight thru scope and toes protruded past tail (Pacific trait) ; mike Gosselin got a pic that may show this; primary projection long, terials short (American trait) but the toes lean toward PGPL; consensus from the Advance Birding ID, etc groups think this is a Pacific based on the strong yellow tones, bill shape, long legs, molt; will be more specific later. WAY TO GO MIKE!!
