Not a Finch
The large bird in this photo is not a finch.
It’s a Gila Woodpecker (The bird in the bottom right corner of the cage). The other birds are House Finches.
Notice the incredible, twisted position this bird has taken to pluck seeds from the feeder.
This feeder represents human ingenuity. The cage is supposed to let finches enter while keeping unwanted critters (such as squirrels, large birds, and dinosaurs) from taking the food.
And yet, this Gila Woodpecker has managed to beat the obstacles.
This photo was taken at the Casa de San Pedro B&B, near Hereford, AZ. Click on the link to see photos of their beautiful place.
