American or Lesser Goldfinch? Idaho, USA (1 Viewer)


Well-known member


I cant tell if thats an American Goldfinch or a lesser Goldfinch. Can someone help me figure this out?

By the way, the second photo where the bird is tilting his head and looking at the camera, I think that is just TOO CUTE!

The bird is like, "Huh? whats that in the window of the human house?"

Agree with American. FWIW, the Lessers I saw a couple weeks ago in AZ were bright yellow as opposed to the brownish tones of this bird.
