We have the Lesser Goldfinch in the state park here, but they are so standoffish I can never get a good shot of them. IMHO, I think a vertical crop that included the whole third bird would have worked better even if the third bird was not in great focus. Everything looks better in odd combinations and you should avoid creating horizontal or vertical lines between your subjects. Here you have a great triangle formed between the birds if only the whole bird was visible. Just another option for you to consider.

I think you are right and they are Lesser Goldfinches - these are the only goldfinches I have seen here. Cute shot with nice colors and details. They seem to be posing for you.
