FINCHES

Here are some photos for comparison of House Finchs and a Cassin’s Finchs. Note the most prominent feature that is different, is the House male finch has red above his eye and on cheeks, while the Cassin’s male has a red “mohawk” and white around the eye. The female Cassin’s has a distinct white line above the eye and and more vivid pattern on her body.  House Finches are common everywhere in southern Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Cassin’s Finches are interior western U.S. birds, found in higher elevation mountain areas.
