Subject: [obol] Re: Fw: [eBird Alert] Jackson County Lawrence's Goldfinch
First breeding record, assuming the female was a Lawrence’s. :-)

That might be clear from the plumage of the young if the family group is relocated after they have sufficient adult plumage.

Adult&#61;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."
