Bird ID??

I need help identifying this bird.  I tried to Google it but was surprised at how many birds there are with yellow bellies, dark crown and dark wing.  I thought maybe an American Goldfinch but I’m not sure.  Anyone know?

  1. The National Audubon Society (Sibley Guide to Birds) narrows this little guy down to an adult Lesser Goldfinch. (Carduelis psaltria)

  2. Looks like a juvenile goldfinch. The lesser goldfinches are typically more greenish. It is so hard to differentiate between male, female, young, old, and anomalies. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you
