red finch - not sure if it's a house finch or a rosy finch. On twigs of forsythia shrub, front patio area.
Captured from open front window with Canon 100-400L lens.

again, another thankyou, Karen. We don't get the cardinals here, - have never seen one in real life but would love to.

Beautifful color and sharp detail. Our male house finches get as red as the cardinals during the breeding season. This is a lovely specimen.

Hi Cindy and Janice, thanks for the nice comments. Janice, am not sure which type of finch it is. Probably House Finch.

Great shot. Guess that is a red finch but is it a house finch or a purple finch

What a lovely capture of springtime you have. We are in autumn and I am so looking forward to spring here. Your finch has the prettiest of colours :)

that's really nice of you all, thanks so much for the lovely comments, Carol, Anne, Beverly, Golda, and Anne from Maine. I did think the same as Golda, that the little finch looks almost exotic. thanks again, happy you like it.

Really nice composition Alandra.These little birds almost look, too exotic to be in our climate.

Beautiful setting for a beautiful Red Finch. The forsythia really set it off!! And what a great picture of the Finch.
