House Finch

(Carpodacus mexicanus)

     This male house finch joined the party when a bunch of robins and cedar waxwings came to raid the toyon tree of its berries in December 2003. He didn't seem as taken with the berries as the robins and waxwings, or maybe he was put off by the undignified antics of the other birds.

      The picture was taken with a Canon 10D digital camera using a Canon 70-200 mm zoom telephoto and 1.4x extender.
