I have only seen American Goldfinches a couple of times and I'm not very good at identifying them.

I know the lighting and colors are not so good in this photo, but does this look like an American or a Lesser?

Man! This one is tough! Those colors are hard to judge! The structure of the body and my overall impression make me think it is a Lesser Goldfinch however. The wingbars also seem better for Lesser than American. Not sure what's going on with the white undertail coverts though.
