It’s always nice to see Red-Browed Finches in large flocks. Here we have a selection of three checking out the potential danger before returning to their mates feeding on the grasses beside the Lachlan River near Cowra NSW Australia.
Canon 40d, Sigma 50-500mm.

I love photography and especially bird photography which is one of the most challenging and beautiful of subjects. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had taking them.

    Excellent and beautiful photo Phillip!!! Very pretty birds. I find it very hard to get a photo of Finches as they are very small and quick.

  • Thanks Eeva, they are very quick and almost always on the move, however these are quite used to cars in this area so my car was a good hide.
