Birds of the Sanctuary: House Finch
These duller cousins of the Purple Finch are found throughout North America, and I'll see quite a few of them. I also see them year round, but I suspect they're not always the same ones. Like their cousins, they go for nyler or thistle seeds, as well as black oil sunflower.
House Finches are often found flocking together with Goldfinches.
Females have the same markings as males, but lack the color.
