House Finch? The color has me baffled?

Recommended Posts

Yes.  House Finches can be yellow or orange, depending on their diet.  I apologize but I've forgotten the name of the chemical in their food that determines the color and shade.

Agreed... and cool bird. So far I've only seen pictures of such varying colors.  I've seen waxwings with different colors on the tips of their tails but not one of these yet. I always enjoy seeing things that are different so thanks for sharing. :)
