3 House and 2 Purple finches at my feeder today. First I've seen since before Christmas.
No, this isn't a house finch and no the other bird is not a purple finch.
Anybody have any ideas as to what they are? (yes, this is one of my photo quizzes)
I'll even give you an idea of where I found them (extra points if you can guess where):
Well, Earthbird was the only one to answer. and she got the ID right.
The two birds are Black Rosy-finch in the first and third pics and Am Pipit in the middle one.
Location is at the top of Beartooth pass in the Beartooth mountains of southern Montana.
I wish the pics could show just how beautiful it is up there. But no number of pics can.
