My daughter came to visit today from Texas. She brought her Canon 6.1 Megapixel, 12X Optical zoom, point-and-shoot camera, and when she wasn't looking I snuck it out to try it. Here are two pictures I took from inside my house shooting through the glass of a bedroom window, at some House Finches on my platform feeder 30 feet away.

Are mine house finches?

There is an orange-phase House Finch that is being seen more and more across the country. I think I may have seen one or two myself, so, yes! your orange bird IS a House Finch.

Joni, this wasn't my camera, my daughter brought it for me to try. She is a professional model in Texas and uses it in her work. There is NO way I could afford a camera like hers but wanted to see what it could do, and I am ASTONISHED!
