Description

In the middle of doing my usual Monday morning count, I was surprised to see a new House Finch I had never seen here before–an Orange Morph Male! It was quite a day because shortly before seeing this “life bird’, I also saw a White-Crowned Sparrow in one of our window boxes for a just a few short minutes–another unusual bird for our yard!

Note from FeederWatch staff—yellow or orange coloration in House Finches is a normal coloration. Reds and yellows are determined by diet. You can learn more about House Finch color on our website.

Male Orange Morph House Finch

Two male House Finches enjoying the feeder on a snowy April morning. One is an Orange Morph Male House Finch--my first time spotting one in our yard since I started observing in 2005.
