What is It

Originally uploaded by Luke Brown
Such a cute bird! But I'm not familiar with it so thought I'd put it on my blog to find out.

After looking through my bird books, I have come to the conclusion this must be a house finch, but I'm still not dead sure. If anyone who reads this happens to know, please tell me. Incidentally, the shots were taken in England. Perhaps it's a bird we don't have in the U.S.?


  1. Did you find out what the little guy with the orange head is? You sure have an aviary of sorts all around you. Great photos!

  2. Hi Teresa. The birds on my blog I got from Flickr, I didn't take them myself. Fortunately, the photographers put a "blog this" link on them, so I could easily use them on my blog. Haven't had time to identify the little bird yet, but I will in a day or two.

  3. I think, but am not sure, that the little guy is a house finch. I couldn't find anything else that seemed to match in any of my bird books.
