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.

A house finch, perched in a juniper tree. I couldn’t believe it stayed put long enough for me to go inside, get my camera, come back out, and take seven pictures. Google conveniently linked them together in this animation.
