they picked the perfect spot!!

at my house it's, pick a branch, any branch....just be sure there's one branch in front of it. so she can't get a clear picture!!

is that ice on the branches??

Awesome focus on both portraits. The female is a beauty, but the red on that male is gorgeous. I've never seen a male house finch that bright and with that much red.

Oh my I didn't know a finch could have red feathers like that. These are both wonderful shots. The ice on the branches looks so cold.

They're such sweet little birds, all fluffed up against the cold.

Very nice shallow depth of field-- love the way they show up so sharply against the blurred background.

So pretty. I miss our finches who moved when we had to take out their favorite tree. Great photos of these sweet birds.

Wonderful shots, Brian! Love the little bit of food still clinging to the finch's beak.
