This pair of House Finches is just darling. The male is the one with the rosy chest, neck and head. He also has brown streaks over his tan body. The female is tan with brown streaks. Both have a wedge-shaped bill that they use to crack open seeds, nuts and smaller fruits and berries. The House Finches like being near homes. These Finches are social birds! There is a small flock of the House Finches here but not many come to the bird feeder on a regular basis. I took these pictures from my living room window on Jan. 19, 2013. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
