This little guy about 4" tall or so was sitting up in this tree and I was able to get to within 20' or so. Anybody have an id on this one please.

I guess I'd have to agree with bobbyz, zoomn. It bothers me a little that I don't see the streaking on the underside come all the way up the throat, but I guess I'll have to chalk that up to individual variation as I can't think of what else it could be.

nice shots but I could not help but laugh at the first one, The bird looks as if he's been smoking some heavy drugs, very spaced out looking.:-)

I would add, these are immature House Finch, the Female has darker stripes than that. Unless you haven't pushed the contrast enough.

Nice shots btw

It is possible that this could be a young one. It wasn't real spooky, it let me walk around the tree a bit before taking off.

The color on the second one where it is chirping is pretty right on. That one came out very clear and detailed. The first one is a little blurry, no tripod on these, that is probably why he looks stoned, his eye is a tad blurry.

Thanks for taking a look.
