Some Lesser Gold Finches that I see around the Grants, NM area.

Male



Female


Hope I got this right, this place needs different code to post photos now that tap-a-talk took over.

I can't see in your photo because the male is facing the camera, but is this the black-backed version of the Lesser Goldfinch?

Hello Ward, yes this is the male with the black cap that is a tab bigger than the American Gold Finch. Well at least, that is what I am thinking 🙂

Okay, I didn't know that some had all black on the back, I'll have to keep an eye out to see. Hopefully I'll see the ones in this area again before I have to leave and if I do, I'll let you know. Thanks for giving me something to keep an eye out for!
