During 2010, we published an article about the felling of the last tall trees in these parts and the effect of doing so on birds which depend on them for food, shelter and safety. Since then a variety of birds has been lost to us. Those birds which survive (Crows, Ravens, Pigeons, House Finches, et al.) are reduced to using fire escapes, satellite dishes, roof railings, etc. for perches as suitable trees are scarce. This album features some close-ups illustrating the adaptability of the House Finch which is the last remaining songbird in City Birds Country, the Heart of San Francisco. Mouse-over thumbnails for descriptions.
These pictures were first published November 14, 2012 by City Birds.
