Female House Finch

Female House Finch(Carpodacus mexicana)

House Finch - female (Carpodacus mexicana)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

This morning when I was walking through my garden, camera in hand, a pair of House Finches (Carpodacus mexicana) cooperated by posing for me.  Here is the female, with her head cocked slightly - probably listening for my footsteps on the gravel path.  Tomorrow I will post a photo of her mate.

Excellent! I love that it is perched on the very end of that branch.

Thanks, 2Sweet. You can tell that this bird isn't very heavy or it would not be able to perch on the end of the branch like that.
