A rose coloured member of songbirds, found in North America. Originally only found in Mexico and Southern United states, the release of catched animals in the early 20th century introduced the species in Northern US and Canada.
In the winter, they are frequent and I spot them on almost every walk through the Park Mont-Royal, usually grouped in small flocks with several males and females, around the different feeding stations. I haven’t seen this species from Spring to Autumn, though, even if claimed to be resident.
On every park visit, we maintain a log of species spotted and identified. If you maintain a similar list, please consider sharing it with Muuuh Wildlife Photography: Share Logs.

Times a species has been spotted, identified and logged while visiting this park. A species is reported only once / park visit. Only parks listed which we visit frequently all year long. Consult the page animal tracking about how we log observations in field.
This species looks very similar to the less frequent Purple Finch (Haemorhous purpureus). I look at the back of the male bird. The House Finch male’s back is brown and not rose. Overall, the male House Finch only head and breast are rose.
