    Details: ***MEGA | continuing bird originally sighted on 3 Aug 2015 by Ellen Blanchard and confirmed on 5 Aug by Cheryl Ring. Relocated in the afternoon (1809) signing atop a bare tree on the edge of the camp property. The bird frequented the birches, only briefly stopping in the tamaracks, and made 6 visits to the thistle feeder (between 1826 and 1910).

    Adult male; black-backed form. Bright lemon yellow from throat to undertail. Black hooded appearance except for where yellow formed little arcs under the eyes. Prominent white markings at the base of the primaries; easy to pick out in flight. Extensive white on tail with dark (black) tips.

    Singing frequently; down-slurred calls easier to distinguish from the other chatter which was similar to the other American Goldfinches visiting the feeders.

    Third state record (pending acceptance by ME-BRC). Other records:
    15 Dec 1992 - 13 Apr 1993 in Georgetown, Sagadahoc Co.
    7 July 2009 in Clifton, Penobscot Co.
