We've been watching off and on for the Lesser Goldfinch but haven't seen it for a week now, so I guess it's time for a final update. We last saw it at the feeders Thursday August 21 in the early afternoon and again in the late afternoon.
Apart from two weeks in July when we were away (although we did have several reports of sightings by others during that period), and with the exception of three individual days when we had no sightings, we saw it regularly, usually several times a day, from June 11 through August 21.
If it reappears I will certainly post an update. I think most people who wanted to see it have been able to, but there are a couple of people who were hoping to see it in September.
