House Finch

House Finch Carpodacus mexicanus

    The eastern population of the familiar House Finch originated in an accidental release of birds captured for the cage bird trade, on Long Island, NY in 1940. This species is now well established in southern Ontario, and this male added colour to our yard this morning - to say nothing of its musical warbling song.
