It was late in the birding classic and we needed a house finch, a pretty common bird but we just had not seen one.. We went to Laguna Gloria in Austin and hiked around, nothing.. then as we were in the parking lot… lo and behold…the house finch..

Almost our last stop on the birding trip. We got some great backyard birds we still needed and we were only about 40 miles from home. Nice look around the hill country of Texas also..
