House Finch

San Pedro River, Sierra Vista, AZ~ Canon Powershot SX40 HS. Dec 2013

Not to be confused with the Purple finch found in coniferous and woodland areas. This common western finch of the deserts and foothills was introduced in small numbers in New York in 1940; by the end of the 20th century it had become a common breeding bird of the suburbs, cities and agricultural areas throughout most of the eastern U.S., where it may compete with Purple Finch, at least in winter. It is abundant at feeders.

VOICE Song a sweet, cheerful warble containing wiry notes (lower and less distinct in western birds). Calls a rich chewp and sweep like House Sparrow.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
