[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I decided to try and capture some bird images since I was off work due to the New Year holiday. I set up near our wood pile which is a magnet to many of the over wintering birds in the area.

The House Finch is very abundant here in Ohio and can be found in back yards, cities, open woods, deserts and canyons. This bird was native to our western states, but was accidentally introduced to the eastern states in 1940.

The male is much more colorful then it's mate sporting red eyebrows, forehead and upper breast. The female looks similar to a female House Sparrow.

Hello Ron
I sure love House Finch and their bright happy colour, especially the males. Thanks for sharing this great shot. The image is sharp with great colour. The DOF is perfect, and so is the composition. A real beauty.

A beautiful capture, Ron.
Exceptional sharpness and truly natural colors.
Belated Happy New Year!
