My bird de jour was on the House Finch. It's latin name is "Haemorhous mexicanus" meaning from Mexico. Adult males are rosy red around the face and upper breast, with streaky brown back, belly and tail. Adult females are plain grayish-brown with thick, blurry streaks and a marked face. House Finches have flat heads and long beaks. They are usually perched high in trees or eating at bird feeders. The House Finch preferred food is seeds. They live on the east and west coast of America. You can probably find them anywhere in those areas. They don't migrate and they are least concerned.
