Welcome to Whatbird!

Yes, this is a male Cassin's Finch. Note the conical bill, notched tail, bright red crown, and nearly unstreaked underparts.

The only two species that are similar to male Cassin's Finches are the House and Purple Finches:

  • Male House Finches lack that much red on the back and also have much stubbier bills.
  • Male Purple Finches have a more uniform red head, slightly stubbier bills, blurrier, redder streaking, and lack the white eyering.
