A female House Finch.  This little bird in this years fledgling.  Despite the weather she seems to be doing quite well.  One can tell the age by the beak.  See the yellow at the back of the beak?  That’s from when she was a baby and she use to open her beak very wide so Mum would feed her!

A pretty male House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) in a tangle of branches of a Rose of Sharon bush.  I love to give these birds lots of attention.  They are so common that I think they are overlooked.  Much to pretty to be overlooked!
