“Wadcutter”That’s not a house sparrow it looks to be a female house finch.


Well, I’m sure I’ll get blasted for this, but it seems like I got the wrong gal. They looked the same to me.

It seems the defining difference is the pale brown cap, no streaking on the chest, and yellowish streak behind the eye.

That Dunnock looks a lot like a house finch, doesn’t it?
