House finch eggs were seen in a patio fern this week. The eggs are much smaller than Robin eggs and are white in color. There are four potential house finches in this nest. The house finch is one of the most common birds to visit a back yard. The Male's forehead, bib and rump are red in color as the females are a dusky brown on their entire body. The house finch has been found in the most densely populated areas in the world including large cities such as Philadelphia and New York.
