Hi Birders,

Had 2 (possibly 3 or 4, hard to tell for sure) singing LESSER GOLDFINCHES in Davenport Cemetery this morning. This is a 1st Lincoln County Record. The birds were very high up in Spruces and would not pose for photographs, unfortunately. Other birds of note were FOY LARK SPARROWS, Savannah, White-crowned, Chipping, and FOX Sparrow, many Hermit Thrushes and Townsend's Warblers, and the usual suspects for this time of year.

A late SNOW GOOSE was at Reardan. One last: other than the LEGO's, one of the Hermit Thrushes was periodically singing it's full song from in a tree - never heard a migrant do that before!

Good birding,
Jon Isacoff, Spokane
