They land on our lawn (yes, we have lawn again now - whoopee!) in small flocks and work the area for seeds and insects.
Here's a close-up of a Red-headed Finch (male) foraging on our lawn (before the rains, you'll notice)
They love our elevated sandstone bird bath and gather there to drink and socialize! Above are several males while the females don't have red heads but are also pretty
Here's a full frontal photo of a male catching forty winks, an intermediate male behind him and a juvenile at the back (slight red tinge on the latter's head)
On another occasion while we were sitting on the patio, I focused on a finch on the garden wall. As I zoomed in, I realized it was another Red-headed Finch - Juvenile
Note the slight trace of red on this bird's head
It flew down onto one bird feeder and I had a field day taking photos of it
I love the scaly pattern on these birds

HAPPY WEDNESDAY TO YOU ALL!
