Finch


I think this is a House Finch?  I read about an eye disease common with them.  When I zoom into their faces, it appears that they might have it.

Yes, I believe it is a house finch. They are so pretty. I didn't know about the eye disease they have. Have a great week!

It is! And yes, I saw many of them here over the summer that looked like that. They are beautiful and add some nice color to the winter.

Yes, that is a house finch. I hadn't heard about the eye disease. I wonder what's causing that. I didn't see as many of them around last summer as I have in the past.

Yes, I've been seeing them at my feeders. They are such a pretty little bird. I haven't heard about the eye disease.

Nice shot! We have lots of these guys at the feeders. I've seen several over the past couple of years with the eye disease.

I haven't seen any at our feeders here, wish I did. Great shot.

It is beautiful...I always question whether they are house finch or purple finch....I usually settle on house finch. I just googled difference between them and I think this is the house finch for sure.
