[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
hello friends, the female of the House Finch

from All About birds website :


« Adult males are rosy red around
the face and upper breast, with streaky
brown back, belly and tail.
In flight, the red rump is conspicuous.

Adult females aren’t red; they are plain
grayish-brown with thick, blurry streaks
and an indistinctly marked face.

Similar Species
House Finches have blurry grayish streaking
on the belly and flanks, unlike either Cassin's Finch
or Purple Finches. Female House Finches have a
plainer brown head, where female Purple Finches
are more strikingly brown and white.

Female House Sparrows have light-brown
stripes on the back and are unstreaked
on the chest and belly. Bill shape is distinctive
for House Finches: it's fairly blunt, and rounded,
without a sharp tip. Purple and Cassin's finches
both have longer, less rounded bills.

Pine Siskins are even more streaky than female
House Finches, with yellow patches in the wings
and a thinner, more pointed bill.

Female House Sparrows are warmer brown
above and don't have streaked underparts. »
