Observation details

Rounded dove-like head, primaries extend just a little beyond tail but not far enough for an American Golden, denser bolder gold/yellow flecking on body, most black on belly extends down even with feet but flecks of black on the undertail coverts obvious in scope view, and bill shape/size smaller than Black-Bellied but slightly larger than American Golden. Input and confirmation on bird ID received from several birders.
