Birder-Day Supplement: House Finch

How have I never noticed these guys around before? They’re so pretty! And they’re apparently ultra-common, too. And loud. Did I mention loud? They’re not quite on a level with the parrots, but they’re up there.

(Please do correct my ID in the comments if I’m wrong. Which I don’t think I am. Maybe.)

Male House Finch

For city birds, these two (one here, one in the next photo) were surprisingly skittish. I couldn’t get within 15 feet.

Male House Finch

Female House Finch

And the female. Not as colorful, but the pattern on the breast is gorgeous.
