Nature Walks – The Colorful House Finch

We have been seeing so many different finches around lately. Most of them are all so colorful. I have to admit, the House Finch and the Cassin’s Finch look pretty similar, so I have to really check my books to see their differences. I am never completely sure which one is which; it is only an estimated guess on my part. But I am pretty sure, according to my Colorado bird book, this is a male House Finch. Either way, I think he is gorgeous and I love his colors.

People are always asking me how I know whether the birds are male or female. The answer is simply in their colors. Here is a picture of a female. The females don’t have nearly as much color as the males do.

Have a great day Everyone. Color your world beautiful.
