Cobirders-- Thanks to Chuck Hundermark and David Thonnessen I must correct my I.D. of American Goldfinch in my previous post this afternoon. The lower bird in my photos is obviously a female LEGO. Even in my haste to post the link to my images I should have noticed not only coloring was brighter than an American Goldfinch at this time and the last photo shows the strikingly similar wing primaries in the two birds. Well, I did it again, didn't I? I guess this is the real lesson for the beginning birders I was hoping to elucidate. I have now made the correction on Flickr.
