Saw this in San Francisco (Golden Gate Park) a few days ago. It was just sitting on the branch of a small plant. Thanks in advance.

I agree with an adult male Lesser Goldfinch. Note the small size, short, conical bill, and notched tail. Adult males have yellow underparts, a black cap, white patches on wings, and a dull green to black back. Females and immature males are drabber and don't have the black cap but have dull green backs, dull yellow underparts, and a white patch on their wings.
