Cassin's Finch

Like I said Saturday, the birds were scarce up near Timberline Lodge. However, besides the occational Mountain Bluebird, I did see some Cassin's Finches. I did not see any males, but that doesn't mean there weren't any as it was hard to get near them.
The female in the image above was sitting on a rock along a service road leading up the mountain. It was much more trusting that most of the others and I was able to creep in pretty close allowing me to get some pretty good pictures of it. There's quite a bit of contrast in the scenery around the birds in the images taken up on the volcanic mountain compared to those at the wetlands near Portland.
