New Birds For The Backyard: House Finch



Finally the sun came out over the last few days.  That gave me the opportunity to dust off the camera and take some pictures.  What I didn’t really expect was to get some pictures of birds I have never seen before, at least not in my backyard.

First up, the House Finch.  If I am not mistaken, this is a male, and he looks pretty old to me.  That beak looks like it has been used quite a bit.

Despite the old beak, that doesn’t mean he didn’t enjoy eating some good bird seed.

After eating one piece of seed, it was time to select what seed was next.

isaac - I had a male with two females (or an immature male) that had hung around for quite awhile last year. Haven’t seen them at all lately. Out in the hill country, they are everywhere.February 20, 2010 – 8:54 am
