2019—Cassin’s Finch

Cassin’s Finches live in mountainous pine forests like those around Mammoth Lakes in the Eastern Sierra Nevadas. They are similar to the House Finches that live in suburbs around the USA but they live mostly in the western US. This male Cassin’s Finch posed for me on a perch near a feeder.
