The lesser goldfinch (Spinus psaltria) is a small songbird of the Americas. It may be the smallest true finch in the world. Together with its relatives the American Goldfinch and Lawrence's Goldfinch, it forms the American goldfinches clade in the genus Spinus sensu stricto. The lesser goldfinches ranges from the southwestern United States (near the coast, as far north as extreme southwestern Washington) to Venezuela and Peru. It migrates from the colder parts of its U.S. range.
