[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Females and immature male House Finches are faintly streaked brown from forehead to rump. Wings and tail are brown. The chin, throat, and breast are uniformly streaked brown on white.

The House Finch was originally a bird of the southwestern United States and Mexico. In 1940 a small number of finches were turned loose on Long Island, New York, and they quickly started breeding. They spread across the entire eastern United States and southern Canada within the next 50 years.

hi Jane
joli résultat de cet oiseau commun, la netteté est vraiment de qualité avec très peu de bruit résiduel. Le support arrondi est un bon choix de cadrage, cela complète bien l'image.
