CommentFences are always a good place to find finches. There was a small flock of about 8 birds having a bath in a nearby dam and then preening on the roadside fence. They did not seem to be concerned by our presence and remained for some time. I took this image handheld from our vehicle.

1/2000 sec @ f/5.6 ISO400 Spot Metering. Handheld. Raw file converted to 16bt tiff and then transferred to Photoshop. Noise was reduced using Topaz DeNoise before the image was downsized and sharpened before saving.
