[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The snow is still quite evident in this shot of a female House Finch. The BG is actually the snow covered soybean field behind our house.

House Finches are a constant guest to our feeders during the winter months. The female is not as colorful as her mate, but she is still quite beautiful in her own ways. Like all finches she sports a rather stout looking bill and has the typical finch features.
A lovely streaked breast and earth tone colors adorn her plumage.

Her distinct chirp is easily recognizable from her high perch in our Persimmon tree. I enjoy watching her all winter long, knowing she will be raising young during the summer months.

Another well presented photograph of this Finch. I know how tough it is when BG is such bright. But your experience is still a valuable key here, we can see. Good details as well as nice color and sharpness. Like a tiny dot in its eye.

Hi Ron
The breast of this bird is a bit similar to that of some hawks.
Magnificent picture, with fine details and well framed.
