Red cutie

by Julz
(Ogden, Utah U.S.A)

It is small, with a red breast and head and brown body. It's too small to be a robin though... It has a seed beak, short and broad like a D but pointier on the ends. It might be some kind of finch, but im not sure. I saw it in Utah if that helps:)

Red Cutie

Yes, Your little red cutie sounds like it is a male house or purple finch. The difference between the two is the shade of red and the Purple finch has more of it.

National Geographic and AllAboutBirds.com has Bird ID.

It is probably a male House Finch or possibly a Purple Finch. Look for photos of these on the web to confirm its idenity.
