Is there a breeding record of Lawrence's Goldfinch in Oregon? I think not. This is a solid observer that has found a Lawrence's Goldfinch in the Applegate Valley in the past 2 years that multiple observers were able to see and photograph.

Four babies begging, adult male feeding. Adult=gray back, black face, bright yellow chest, whiteish gray belly. Babies - sort of subtle stripes on belly fading to clear in center, yellow on wings somewhat like a Pine Siskin, bill was not pointed like a siskin, however, but instead was sort of stout like a House Finch, sort of a tannish pink color. Plain head on the babies."
