Here is a series of photographs by Alice Anderson of a house finch nest at the office. All photos are by Alice Anderson, unless otherwise noted. Click on an image to enlarge it. We will document the story of this house finch family.

At 10:30 a.m. on May 9th, 2015, I found the house finch nest on the ground, with no sign of the birds, or even the unhatched eggs. I presume a cat attacked the nest. So our photo journal ends on a sad note, the house finch family being yet another victim of house cats. Scientists estimate that cats kill a couple billion birds each year in the U.S., and our house finch babies just joined the tally.
