Cassin's Finch - Haemorhous cassinii by 

Taken August 27, 2012 west of Victor, Montana USA near Bear Creek in the Bitterroot Valley. Male Cassin’s Finch on an Aspen tree branch (Quaking Aspen
Populus tremuloides).

They are a Species of Concern in Montana though no significant threats have been identified. Given their occurrence in burned and harvested forests, the population declines that have been identified recently are difficult to explain.

Canon EOS 7D, Canon EF500mm f/4L IS USM, used a tripod
1/200s, f/7.1, ISO:640, 500mm, manual setting

    Hi Merle, thanks for the note about the Cassin’s being a Species of Concern; excellent portrait!

  • Thank you so much!!!

  • I photograph mostly as a naturalist and in that role I am interested in documentation, education and learning as much as I can about the species I capture digitally and hopefully share.

    What a gorgeous little bird. Splendid capture.

  • Thank you Bunny! I was very, very patient and took quite a few to get this one. I liked that it was so “portrait” like and clear.
