Bird #260 — Lesser Goldfinch

carduelis (thistle) psaltria (one who plays the lute)

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Arizona

We were walking through the park near the bird cages when I saw this Lesser Goldfinch fly to the top branch of a palo-verde.  I knew what it was right away from studying my field guides.  And this was a good thing because it soon flew off out of sight.
