Still part of my photos from Big Bear is this Cassin’s Finch. The light was doing amazing things in the background, including making the pine needles on the tree behind her look like the shine from rain or metal. I just really love the colors happening here, which is nice because little brown birds don’t normally get much play on websites because of their “dullness.”
Seeing this bird made me realize that I don’t know how to tell a female Purple Finch apart from a female Cassin’s Finch, so I found this handy guide online.

Agree, that background really sets off the bird nicely. Great shot.
Thanks! I’m trying harder to make the backgrounds better in my shots. After a while birds against a blue sky get a little visually monotonous. 🙂
