Hello Mrs. House finch!

Great action shot!

I have been meaning to ask you, what kind of camera do you have?

Great shot. Almost as if she is posing for you.

Bird Girl said...

Love that action - you make an otherwise sort of drab bird - very exciting!

It is tough to ID this bird with this interesting photo, great action!

Shellmo said...

KJ - thank you!

Wendy - I use a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI.

NC - she definitely stayed a while!

Birdgirl - it seems like even though the females of the birds are usually drab - they seem the sweetest.

Hannibal - thank you! I had to pull out my field guide and make sure it wasn't a purple finch - but still not sure...

Great action shot, Shelley. It looks like your house finch was flexing her wings. House finches around here are a dime a dozen and I've never gotten a photo like that.
