David Wolf, "LESSER GOLDFINCH: this species was the great surprise of the season and a first record for the entire Pineywoods region. An an immature male was captured, banded and photographed in Nacogdoches town on Jan 5 by master-bander Charles Ely and "netted again a few days later". I did not hear of it being seen or caught again after that. Jesse Fagan rushed over and got good in-the-hand photographs of the bird on Jan 5."
