Female House Finch-2
Female House Finch: ISO 800, 600mm, f/6.3, 1/320

We currently have 3 House Finches setting up a spring home in our backyard. The "family" consists of 1 male and 2 females.

This picture is of one of the females standing on our shepherd's hook that holds our Nyger Seed Feeder during the summer months. I think she maybe remembers this food source from last year and is looking for where I hid the seed. I put it out today.
