I saw this cute little bird last February, in Mexico City. Could you help me identify it? Thank you so much in advance :)

Glad I could help Telma!

They really are cure birds but they are so common in most of America that we forget LOL

During the summer it is not uncommon for there to be more than a dozen at a time in my backyard. They really are fun to watch.

Take care!

On the dot, GaryE! It is the house finch, for sure. Did you see the name Science has given him?
"Haemorhous mexicanus"...! :) Thank you so much for your enlightening comment.

Take a look at http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/house_finch/id

what do you think? It sure looks like a common house finch to me. They certainly live as far south as Mexico.
