House Finches may be common in North America, but this is the first time I have seen one in North Florida.

I thought it was a House Sparrow until I saw the distinct red markings.

I learned that males have the red markings.

He stayed in place for me to get some nice photos but I struggled to get a good shot due to the distance and for some reason I had trouble focusing correctly.

He had a very cute call.

I hope to see his mate next time. If anyone has experience with these finches please share with me below. Cheers!
