Lesser Goldfinch?
by: Judy-Seattle

Doreen, I looked in my bird book and your description sounds like Lesser Goldfinch that are found in the Southwest. There are 2 varieties of them; one is green-backed and the other is black-backed. They are 4.5" long. Look it up and let us know if that's the one.
