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.

Lesser Goldfinch, Sanders, Montana USA, Thompson Falls, 27 June 2018


Not rare is some places, but when this male was joined a week ago by a female, this may be a new regional nesting location far from its traditional.

Lesser Goldfinch male, Sanders, Montana USA, our yard Thompson Falls, 15 June 2018


Perhaps 3rd (or 4th) record for the County, first for the city. Day 4 - did not leave with passage of 2 cold fronts, and despite resident American goldfinch that could have chased it off...
