The House FinchCarpodacus mexicanus is the most common bird at our feeders. While the female, right and left in photo 0761, is plain, the male is striking with its red front of head (2191), bib, and rump (0261). A yellow variant (829) is occasionally seen. All of these, except the last two were photographed in our back yard. The last two were photographed in the back yard of friend in Albuquerque, NM.
