Lesser Goldfinches gone from area
All winter I have had 8 or more Lesser Goldfinches daily at my open
tray feeder. I have not changed the seeds I offer. For over a month I
have not seen even one in my area (Sacramento, CA). Peterson's Western
Bird book indicates that they winter and summer in western California
and the valley. Do they migrate in elevation in the summer within
their range? Where do they nest if they do not nest near free food?
