Fancy red bird attracts the girls

Photo by Nigel
Like the House Sparrow, the House Finch has house in their name because they like living near human dwellings. The female is a striped brown and whit bird, the male House Finch's plumage varies in color from light yellow to bright red. The healthiest foragers usually have the reddest feathers and the best change to attract a female.
