It’s a cinch this finch didn’t flinch (say that 3 times quickly!)

At the same location where I shot the immature Yellowthroat and the immature Song Sparrow (both posted earlier), this bird also wanted to get in on the posing.  I’m using the rationale that there isn’t enough red on his head to be an adult and a female would have no red, plus his feathers are a little bit ruffly, leaving me with the ID of immature male House Finch.  If I’m out to lunch on this, please let me know!  🙂   Hope your weekend is great!
