The bird of the month - House Finch (Cassin's Finch)

 -House Finches are the most common feeder bird in Colorado. In the mountains, it may be replaced by it's close relative, the Cassin’s Finch.

-House finches LOVE sunflower. They will also eat Nyjer (thistle) and safflower; but will not eat insects, suet, or any other non-seed food

-Most male House Finches have a red face and chest but some may be yellow or orange. This may be due to diet, genetics, or a nutrient shortage
during the last molt. The redder a male House Finch is, the more attractive females find him.

-Listen for a high-pitched, sweet warbling and trilling that lasts about 4-5 seconds and a “sweet?” call. Finches may start singing as early as January.

-Finches will not use a nesting box but will nest on a nesting shelf or other covered shelf such as in a hanging flower basket or on under the eaves
of a house

Our unique No-Mess Blends feature seeds that have had their shells removed so only the meat of the seed is left. No hulls on the seeds makes for tidier feeding, since there's no debris on the ground to clean up. Pound for pound, our No-Mess Blends offer the best value because you do not pay for uneaten seed waste. Our No-Mess DP includes sunflower chips, diced peanuts and millet.
