Male House Finch of The Vermilon River A Post to Camera Critters # 147
These are the photos that I mixed up with the purple finch in an other post, so here they are now. In that post I gave the following facts:
1) A flock of house finches is called a development of finches.
2)They were imported from the SW US in the 40's and spread from there.
3) That wonderful raspberry red may be yellow because of diet and is called a variant.
