[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The house finch was originally kept in captivity but a group escaped, multiplied and large populations are now found in all climate zones. It has been snowing all day and another foot is expected tonight. I thought of posting a tropical shot. Instead I chose to honor another little miracle. He has adapted so well that he can survive even the blizzard we had a few weeks ago. Hope you like him. Have a great day!

Hi Lori,

From what I've read, these little guys can survive the freezing cold as long as they have abundant food to metabolize. A nice weather-themed shot. It's snowing like crazy here right now with quite a few loud thunder boomers! Now that's something you don't see or hear every day.

Warm regards,

Very attractive picture with warm colors and excellent composition.I like it a lot.Regards Otto.

Nice capture Lori, I imagine you will have many more snow shots the storm you all just got.
