East Grand Rapids, MI, United States
I had such a difficult time deciding which image to submit this week! I have some real gems of both American Goldfinches and House Finches, so narrowing it down was a real challenge
I finally decided on this one. It’s just a common male House Finch. But he dangled on the end of this snow covered pine branch after one of this year’s first winter snow storms, contemplating his next move. I love the contrast of his vivid rosy pink coloring against the snow, the tilt of his head, the over the shoulder glance which shows off both his pretty pink head and interesting wing markings. Christmas card perfect!
