I was in the front garden this morning planting some mums and a ferns in flower pots when I became aware of the insistent chirpings of a young bird. I quickly saw it up in the limbs of a nearby tree. I went for my camera, and got these photos. I couldn’t see any nest or other nestlings. I think he (or she) is a baby house finch, because his mother looks like a finch and has a red streak on her crown.
