At Laurel Marsh today I pished in a Purple Finch that had been feeding near the ground. It flew up and perched about five feet up on a limb and other than very slightly moving it's head basically froze for what seemed like five minutes. I know birds will freeze when there is a hawk nearby, but I have never witnessed this behavior before when a bird is pished in. Interesting.
