26th May 2012 – House Finch

Mum and Dad House Finch were on patrol looking after their chicks in the nest that is very close to the front door of the home that we are living in.  They have not been put off by the gardening going on around them, but when I stood on the porch patiently waiting for a chance to photograph the chicks, Mum and Dad were chattering loudly to the babies to “Keep your heads down.”

The parents did go near to the nest but the opportunity to photograph the chicks peeping over the edge never materialised.  However, Dad made a striking subject.
