A male House Finch showing off his beautiful red color in the winter garden
House Finches are wonderful to have in your yard and garden. The males show pretty reddish colors on their head and chests. Both males and females have brownish stripes on their bodies.
The males have a beautiful song that they sing throughout the year, but mostly in the spring and summer.
House Finches eat mostly seeds and fruits, and are one of the few bird species that feeds its young seeds and other plant material -- no bugs!
An interesting fact about House Finches is that the red color of the male depends on the food it eats! Some foods make the colors redder and some make it more a lighter color, from pink to orange! That's why there's so much color variation in these birds.
The female House Finch is primarily brownish color with brown stripes
on its head and chest.
Purple Finches are closely related to House Finches but have less stripes on the males. It's hard to tell these apart sometimes.
House Finches are very social birds and are almost always seen in flocks. They'll nest repeatedly throughout the summer - in some places up to 6 broods a season!
