Add'l ID info for House Finches NEW

Your bird is indeed a house finch. However, just for future ID assistance, sometimes their bellies will be almost a yellow which starts under the red about their heads. The yellow will turn darker and the "spots" will eventually grow into more stripe-like markings.

It's a male House Finch. They are found all across the country. We used to see a lot of them every winter, but this year I haven't seen any.
