Leucosticte australis

Status:  No accepted records.

Taxonomy:  No subspecies are recognized.

Comments: A bird found on the Tristate CBC 15 Dec 1984 near Nebraska City was tentatively identified as a female of this species (Cortelyou 1985). It could not be relocated, and it was concluded that it may have been an aberrantly-plumaged female House Sparrow.  There are no records of this species east of the Rocky Mountains (eBird.org, accessed April 2018).
