Weekend Birding: Cold House Finches
House Finches are year round residents in the Chicago area. In the winter they are often seen in groups in urban areas, parks and backyards.
I saw this pair at my favorite bird watching site, Cantigny Gardens. The male is on the right and the female on the left. They don’t seem to mind the snow or the cold. Their layer of down feathers provide good insulation.
