Pretty Connecticut

New England is just so goddamn beautiful. Sometimes you have to catch it early when it's still sleepy.




This male house finch appears to be unwell, the only reason I was able to get a decent picture of him. They aren't native to New England, but people seem to like them pretty well anyway. This one might have conjunctivitis--a lot of them get this, often from dirty birdfeeders.

Not good, unfortunately. Conjunctivitis can be fatal for birds. (can't see = can't eat; hopefully a sharp-shinned hawk will catch him before he suffers too much)
