    Went out to the "Matenkosky NWR" yesterday (my backyard) and captured my first Lawrence's Goldfinch yesterday afternoon. At first I thought it was a Goldfinch morph, but seeing both male and female, I figured it was something new. I only got a photo of the male, so hopefully they stayed here for a few days so I can get more photo ops!
