I'm not sure if you're located in the US but the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 prohibits taking (keeping) of most all wild birds except for temporary rehabilitation of any wild bird species. (including Canada & UK)
I live in PA and the game commission is very fussy on anyone keeping (as a pet) any species on the MBTA with the exception of the house sparrow, European starling and the common pigeon (rock dove). It's apparent that your baby is not a house sparrow and I'd ask the rehab group that you work with if there can be a problem keeping your charge as a pet. Just don't want any heartbreak on your part.

Thanks Phil! I looked it up and from what I can tell the Goldfinch is not a protected species in NZ and therefore you don't need a permit to hold one(Here is the link though in case I'm wrong, and the goldfinch is mentioned in Schedule 5). So I think it will be alright?
