The House Finch, Carpodacus pulcherrimus, is a medium-sized finch. Adults have a long brown tail and a brown back and wings. Adult males are red on the forehead, breast and rump with a red patch on the throat; their belly is streaked. Adult females have brown upperparts and streaked underparts. Their breeding habitat is urban and semi-open areas from southern Canada to Mexico. They nest in cavities including openings in buildings, also on various kinds of vegetation. These birds are mainly permanent residents; some eastern birds migrate south. These birds forage on the ground or in vegetation. They mainly eat seeds and berries. They are a frequent visitor to feeders in winter. Their song is a rapid, cheery warble. This bird was originally a resident of the south-western United States. Birds which were brought in illegally as caged birds to New York City were released so that the vendors could avoid prosecution. They spread rapidly and, in areas that are not forested, have displaced the resident Purple Finch. They have also been introduced into Hawaii.
