North Alabama winter bird





A Sparrow?

No, a female House Finch.

Thanks to everyone who helped me with my bird identification.
Her male friend was featured a couple of days ago.  She was alone on this particular day and time at the feeder.

so precious and with the bright light he looks almost like a brilliant sketch.. great shots, all three. i can only identity birds like chickens and turkeys and flamingo and pelican, a few gulls.

We dont have this exact bird in UK, but it has the beak of a finch. Its not a sparrow, or at least not what WE call a sparrow

I thought it was a finch too with it's beak shape. Sweet photos, none the less.

Female House Finch. Nice shots! We have lots of these guys during the winter.

Yes, a female house finch! You took some really beautiful portraits of her. It's nice to see birds on your blog, Amy!! :)

It is so cute...for years I just assumed they were some type of sparrow!
