Lovely photos of the house finches, Eileen. I especially like the third and fourth ones with dad and fledgling. Thank you for hosting and I hope you have a great Labor Day weekend!

Nice shots of the finches.I've only seen one House Finch in our south Florida neighborhood since moving here 10 years ago. We lived in Dallas when they suddenly appeared in the 1980s. Since they had spread from both coasts across the entire continent, they converged in a line that roughly went through central Texas, so I could not tell whether they represented the east or west coast population. Saw many with eye disease in Illinois a couple of years ago.

Great close-ups, Eileen...I love watching all the birds with their young ones. They are so entertaining!...:)JP
