Lesser Goldfinch

Carduelis psaltria


This is either a female or immature. Pale yellow all over, faint wing bars, and the white patch below the primaries on the wing distinguishes this from the American Goldfinch. Lifer!


Several of these guys were flying around between the ground and low trees near a creek.
