Female House Finch

Let’s tone it down a bit

I initially thought this was an oft neglected sparrow. Commonplace seemingly everywhere that has a bush or tree, these little things tend to get dismissed or ignored.

Then I noticed the pattern on the body didn’t really match with a female sparrow, so I did a bit of looking around, and I think this might actually be a female house finch. The dudes are very red on their upper half, but I hadn’t actually looked into what the dames look like.

I tried to take pity on a sparrow and take its picture, and accidentally took a picture of a finch instead. Wacky world, I guess.

I took this with my 150-600mm lens, shooting at 1/800 and f6.3 with an ISO of 640. Ended up with some nice background colours too.
