Day 280: House Finch

“The House Finch was originally a bird of the western United States and Mexico. In 1940 a small number of finches were turned loose on Long Island, New York, after failed attempts to sell them as cage birds (“Hollywood finches”).

Scientists estimate between 267 million and 1.4 billion individuals.” To read more click here Pictured: Female House Finch
