Wild Bird Wednesday: Red-browed Finch

On our recent day trip to O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat, I came across a new bird, the Red-browed Finch. There were quite a number of these little birds, foraging on the ground for seeds after the bird feeding session.

Such sweet little things! I saw these for the first time last year at Echuca. They don't come as inland as Mildura in Vic.

Hi there - Nice bird - I have a very similar image of the same species on the same concrete slabs!!

O'Reilly's is a great place - although I was a little uncomfortable with the feeding station for the Bowerbirds - I was happy to see some away from the Lodge.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

I LOVE finches! They are interesting to watch and they make the best little beeping noises. The local finches here aren't as colorful as these beauties, but we are happy to have them in our yard.
