Lesser Goldfinch Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite:  Lesser Goldfinch are seen on rare occasions in western South Dakota, but the only time I've seen them have been on trips to the southwestern United States. The photo below of a Lesser Goldfinch feeding on "desert broom" seeds (think that's what this plant is called) was taken at Tanque Verde Wash in Tucson, Arizona, in November of 2015.
