A Bird Tolerant Of Our Presence

I think this is a House Finch.  It's been hanging around in the backyard for a couple of days and it's comfortable with us getting with two feet of it. So I took some photos.

 It was preening its feathers and lost its balance. Since its large talons could get any traction on the glass table it slipped overboard. But it recovered quickly and landed on the arm of the chair.

 One less ant.

I think it was trying to survive the heat.
