[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lesser-Finch a bit leary of the photographer..

Tidbit from field guide: Lesser finches feed on dandelion seeds and raise their young on soft unripe seeds. They adjust the time and place of their breeding
to the presence of this staple food. Their Old World cousins, the pine siskins, goldfinches, serins, and canaries, have been kept as cage birds for centuries, the males singing incessantly all year except during the molt period..

Hi Jane,

Good detail and sharpness on the face and chest, nice alert pose and a good highlight in the eye. The background is excellent.
You should come and visit us here. There are good bird images available.
