Invasive Finches

Well you learn something new everyday. I didn't know that the sparrows and house finches were invasive. I just thought they were common. I came across this article today.

To begin I give my massive thanks to all the people who gave me advice on this forum for this trip - it really helped with what we finally did!

Day 1: Seville
We caught the flight early, and by the time we arrived at our hotel, it was late morning, and so we decided to explore the city. I had seen a few birds distantly from the taxi over, but nothing really identifiable down to species level....

The bluebird isn't a spectacular picture by any means....just a bluebird. But this bird was perched 60 yards away. That alone shows me the value of a scope. I was shooting at the equivalent of 1250mm in a camera lens. My Canon Camera and 400mm lens can't come...
