Once a bird found in the west, the theory goes that a House Finch escaped a cage in New York and the population grew rapidly. One might debate the manner in which the House Finch became so widespread, or how human interference can impact animal diversity, but you can't argue about the beauty of this pretty red headed bird and its sweet song.
