Lesser Goldfinch

Another new bird for me and this one right outside my kitchen window! This was a little tricky take as there were a lot of obstacles in the way. First I had to shoot through the window pane that didn't have a screen (a more severe angle). Then I had to work around the smudged areas on the window. And finally there were all the branches in the way. All-in-all, these two turned out quite nice. Normally, Lesser Goldfinches have a more solid black crown. I assume this one either has winter plumage or is an immature male.
