The striking Lesser goldfinch’s are very small finches with dark on their head and back, the color can vary from black to dark green. Their underside is bright yellow and they have white in their wing feathers. The females are duller without the stark contrast between the back and underside. Lesser goldfinch’s are generally found in the western part of the United States and Mexico. They like to eat small seeds from the sunflower family of plants. These little birds hang out in my neighborhood.
