finch-like bird, Yucatan, Mexico
1 Attachment(s)
While birding in Yucatan in December, snapped a quick pic of this finch-like bird. Note short pale bill, dark eye, dark notched tail, pale/yellowish underparts, darker wings. But note white near tips of wings. Sorry that the pic is so bad, but any ideas? There were so many new birds there for me that I don't even know where to begin.

I'm thinking Lesser Goldfinch?

I was worried for a bit by paler bill, but some photos show that.

Ok, I'll go with Lesser Goldfinch. Thanks KenM and Niels! So helpful to get input on birds that stump me!

Looks a bunting type to me, possibly Indigo
