[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Winter is in full swing here in Ohio and the finches are quite active. Here I have posted a male House Finch which can easily be recognized by it's red breast, forehead, eyebrows and rump.

These cute little birds seem to always travel in tiny groups, therefore when one is spotted you can be sure others are nearby. Even on the coldest days of winter you will find these friendly birds out and about, in search of seeds for nourishment. I have a persimmon tree in my backyard that they particularly like to perch in.
