I saw (and heard) a bunch of finches – some house finches, and at least this one lesser goldfinch – when I took the trash bins out this morning. So I went back in, washed my hands and grabbed the camera.

Some more house finches and a hummingbird.

Some more house finches and a hummingbird. Hummingbirds always look weird to me when they’re perched.

I must have seen over a dozen house finches on a very short walk today. I assume there’s a nest or several in the area.

Finally recovered enough from the flu to get out for a walk in the neighborhood (while that’s still an option).

I think this first bird (possibly a goldfinch?) was trying to practice social distancing, though the crow in the third photo seems to be doing a better job. The house finch was such a bright red that I thought it had to be another kind of bird until I looked at the photos.
