Lawrence's Goldfinch (Spinus lawrencei), Clarkdale, Yavapai County

This Lawrence's Goldfinch pair was photographed by Deborah Rasmussen on 01 June 2014

Although Lawrence's Goldfinches have bred regularly in recent years at the Hassayampa River Preserve in northern Maricopa County close to Yavapai County, it is casual in Yavapai in summer, with very few reports in recent years after mid-March. This seems to be a good year for Lawrence's Goldfinch in northern Arizona, with several reports away from regular breeding areas.

Distinctive: both with overall gray bodies, male showing black face with yellow rump and intricate yellow wing pattern, female duller with yellow breast.
