Feeding time for finches

These cheeky little red finches were raiding the grasses for their dinner when I spotted them. We have them in our garden occasionally (despite the cat) and call them the “peep peep” birds for the noise they make. The males are magnificent in their scarlet coats,┬ábut they’re very speedy and hard to catch. Once I stood still and became part of the scenery, they were focused on their snacks.
