Lesser Goldfinch versus American Goldfinch

There are three goldfinches native to the United States.  They are Lawrence Goldfinch, American Goldfinch, and lesser Goldfinch.  I have never seen a Lawrence Goldfinch and probably will have to go out to the West Coast again to try to find one.  American goldfinches a very common and are seen quite regularly, especially here in Southeastern Massachusetts.  Finally, this summer when I was in the hill country of Texas.  I finally was able to observe and photograph the Lesser Goldfinch.  For those of my readers who have not seen the Lesser Goldfinch I am posting to views of the male, along with a male American Goldfinch.
