  1. This is what comes of feeding birds in the same spot for 24 years. On cross-country skis a couple of miles from here we spotted a Golden Eagle hanging out on a power pole. But you still have more species. Here I only have to pay attention to a couple of warblers.
  2. Thanks. The white stripe patterns on the back seem more jumbled than those of American Goldfinches too, no?
  3. I think I've got a good handle on the adult male Lesser Goldfinches, but still I'm still hazy with females / immatures. Are all of these Lesser? Thanks again.
  4. It looks like there was a sighting Jan 4 in town. Thanks again.
  5. Thanks for checking eBird. I was going by the range map at All About Birds and didn't think of it. I'll have a look at Bannock County on eBird to see if anyone else has spotted them nearby. They come to the feeders occasionally in the summer but I don't recall ever having seen them in the winter. Dan
  6. Thanks for the quick responses. Lesser Goldfinches don't usually winter this far north (southern Idaho) so I didn't trust my eyes.
  7. Can anyone help me decide if this is an American Goldfinch or a Lesser Goldfinch? Sorry the picture is so fuzzy. https://photos.app.goo.gl/cYaUGVbooD4zWM2W7
