The male House Finch has bright red to pale yellow on most of its body. The amount of this coloring comes from the food the male eats. The brighter, more colorful the male House Finch, the more attracted a female will be to the male.
The House Finch will nest in bird houses and bird boxes, but if you look closely at a hanging basket in a backyard or on a porch, you may even find a little house finch inhabiting it!
