    I wish I could have taken the top of this bird’s head!

    My first guess would be female House Finch. It is certainly one of the Haemorhous.

    I agree it is a house finch.

    Gayle…if it is a male house finch…they have a lovely, rosy-colored head, even though we might not be able to see it in the photo.

    I think in this photo the red would show. It could be a juvenile male, though.

    It is a female house finch….the males have the red on their heads and through their wings.

    Yes, that would be about right.  We get lots of house finches here.  Mind you, as for whether it’s a female or male…don’t know.  Wish I could have had a better picture.

    That is a female Stella… they are more grey and the male has red on them… here is a pic of one of my females…the female house finch looks a lot like the female purple finch…
