Re:[Mendobirds] Lawrence's Goldfinches on Burris Lane
- Fri, 08 May 2009 -- This evening from 6:45-7:05 the LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCHES
were back at the end of Burris Lane in Potter Valley as described in the
last post. This time there were two females and one male on the fence and
in the orange fiddlenecks. When they land in the fiddlenecks, they
disappear from sight and could be overlooked. A male was singing on the
fence only about 25 feet from my car window; I don't think I have ever heard
the song as well. It's a sweet, complex warble with some mimicry thrown in.
I hope we can find them on tomorrow's field trip.
