tsuru88@gmail.com Monte Taylor is a Canon Professional Photographer. He began his interest in birds and nature at the age of 9 years. That interest grew into wildlife photography which he has pursued now for over 57 years. Now standing at over 850 species of birds photographed within the ABA (not including Hawai'i - which I've added many more species). His images have been published in National Geographic, National Audubon Society Books, Field Guides and Magazines, Birding, Western Birds, and numerous other books, magazines, periodicals internationally, CD's, DVD's, and research papers over the last 40 years. His accomplishments include photographing nearly all (over 850 species) of the expected bird species, including many of the rarest, in North America, plus Hawai'i. To that he has added many of the large mammals, cetaceans, and sea mammals and expanded into species from Japan, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, east Asia, and the Bahamas. He has also been in the number one position on the most photographed birds in the American Birding Association area (North America) for several years now. At present he has over 980,000 stock images of these species (and sub-species) in different poses, age groups, and activities. His travels have taken him to each state and province on the North American continent, north of Mexico (and Mexico as well), including many trips to Japan, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, east Asia, and the Bahamas. His most favorite places are Alaska (most favorite), California, southeastern Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Texas, Japan, China, British Columbia, Ontario, Newfoundland, and Nova Scotia, Canada, Japan, China, and Thailand. http://www.tsuru-bird.net (Bird and Mammal Website - including Cetaceans and Others from North America, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, and the Bahamas) http://www.tsuru-bird.net/image.htm (Individual Species list / links)

Lesser Goldfinch, Sanders, Montana USA, Thompson Falls, 15 July 2018


Less than an hour after one flew over me a couple hundred yards away, as soon as I got home, this male (no doubt the same as previously reported) was at our fake pond! He had come from the direction to and from which a female had come to the same pond almost a month ago. I expect to see juveniles soon which would make this the farthest west MT site for breeding of this otherwise rare but not so rare bird in the state.

Lesser Goldfinch, Sanders, Montana USA, Thompson Falls, 10 July 2018


Not the rarest species by a long shot for Montana, but likely breeding in a new location - farthest west in the state. Male and female were present through 27 June. Male calling yesterday... Last seen on 27 June, yesterday I heard the distictive squee-ah, but did not see. Today at 1 pm. Potentially NOW confirming that a pair is still neaby! Lesser Goldfinch male in Thompson Falls MT, if proven by young later, a new nesting location for the species in the West.
