Lesser Goldfinch at Julian

Here are a couple of shots of another bird from Julian this past July.

During the rainy El Niño winter of 1997-98 this widespread County bird even bred in the blooming deserts far from water (San Diego County Bird Atlas. Unitt. 2004). This winter is shaping up to be a strong El Niño again--hopefully with accompanying rains that southern California could sure use.
