We Have Observed a House Finch at Neighborhood - Critter 66

Friday, January 26, 2024
After "freezing" temperature for a while, we start to see several kinds of birds visit feeders of our neighborhood.  


Fig 01 - A house finch on the top of feeder. 

One of birds is a house finch with scientific name, Haemorhous mexicanus. Then, the bird is identified by helping of GoogleID app. It is a common bird in America, especially in North America. 

The bird is a cheerful songbird. The sound like whistles and twitters. The rapid melody makes more cheerful of the day. Surprisingly, this bird can sing around 2,000 (two thousand) songs per day.

In our city, Baton Rouge, LA, we may observe the house finch in small flocks, since they are social birds.

  5. Very interesting. I just see the finches hanging around the drive throughs as of late waiting for food back in the fall..now with these snowy days I dunno where they went. I used to know someone who had several in a big bamboo bird cage out on the screened in back porch back in Texas. She always took such great care of them.

  13. These are such adorable birds. When we lived in NJ it was the state bird and we had so many at our feeders, but here in PA not so many. Every once in awhile one comes by for a visit.
