Well, that's a #finch of a different color!
There were so. many. finches.
This weekend, try to observe as many wild plants and animals in your neighborhood as you can, especially in urban areas.
Here are some #birds I spotted on a late afternoon walk today, including a sparrow, one of many many finches, two doves, and what I think might be two blackbirds (yes, including the gray one).

I lost count of how many finches I saw
A pair of finches perched on a cable across the street from the other pair I photographed.
Two finches spotted in the empty greenbelt below a line of transmission towers. They’re several meters apart, though I took the photos from the same spot on the sidewalk, and the female chased a sparrow away when she landed.
Also you can really see the difference between the “look at me!” coloring on the male finch and the camouflage coloring on the female.
