I believe that this is an Emu. Taken at the Australian section of the Living Desert Zoo and Garden, Palm Desert California.

House Finch

House finch bird
I’ve set up my camera to capture birds as they come to eat. I’m using a cover over my lens to block out any reflection from the window. The lens is about 5 inches from the bird. This creates some depth of field problems.
