Just as we were scanning J. Finkbeiner's excellent report from the Bishop Sewer Ponds, we looked out at the seed feeder in our backyard on Shoshone Dr, Bishop, and there was a great-looking Lawrence's goldfinch, cavorting with the lessers. It had a black cap, but not the black throat & chin of an adult male. Therefore, we think it's a 1st year male, just molting into its adult plumage.
