During a winter trip to southern Alberta, a quick look at the eBird rarities and an amazing find at a feeder in Pincher Creek had me make a quick stop in a residential area near the center of town to a very nice couples home. This yellow and black finch is certainly a long way from his usual range, especially during the cold winter months. Lesser Goldfinch have been breeding as far north as Osoyoos, BC in recent years and that seemed like a screech based on their regular territory typically not travelling further north than Oregon. For one to be in Alberta in the winter is completely another. The other finch on the feeder are Common Redpolls.
