A pair of female House Finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) sitting on the end of a branch of the Japanese Maple. They were eating the buds off the Maple!

In the Rain


A lovely female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) sitting on a branch of the Rose of Sharon bush in the rain. I feel much better for the birds now the temperature is back above 0 and the ice is gone!

A Cutie

Keeping an Eye Out


A male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) keeping a close eye on the sky. We have had a Hawk dropping in recently so I think the little birds are cautious!

Way Up There


This female House FInch (Carpodacus mexicanus) has picked almost the highest branch of this Maple tree to perch and have a look around.

In the Rain


Another gloomy lightless rainy day. It didn’t seem to bother the birds, who were quite active at our feeders. A male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) waits for a break in the action
