Can anyone tell me which finch this might be?

Recommended Posts

Yes, that’s a molting immature/molting 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 (depending on location). 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.
