Have seen this bird at my feeders several times this winter.
House Finch with white head.
A male leucistic house finch has been showing up at my feeder, too.
A white headed finch come to our Gresham, OR feeder this spring and has flocked with the other house finches. The other finches accept this bird, it is neither dominant or subordinate of the other finches. There is only one.
I have a white headed finch flocked with the house finches at my place in Oakland, CA.
I just had a white-headed finch at my feeder. It’s December in Utah!
I had a white-headed finch at the bird feeder on December 28, 2015 Albuquerque NM 87120
There is an actual breed of Finch with a full white head. I think that the above photo is that from pictures posted online. What I have coming to our feeder is a Finch with a small white cap on the top of it’s head and a white throat,- places that are usually pink. I think it is a mutant Finch bit cannot find any information on-line about it!
Waterford Wisconsin, Bald Headed Finch at my feeder, too.
We live in Fort Mill, sc and have an active feeding station for the last 4 years. 3 days ago a white headed house finch showed up at our feeder. First time ever and what a treat
