Fun with House Finches, wild birds

A friend on Oahu, Hawaii sent these pictures.

House finches made a nest in their hanging spider plant. All four eggs hatched. Cute! The adult bird is the dad. Hens don't have the red coloring.

These finches are also called Linnet finches in other parts of the country. Or, Papayabirds ... but probably only in Hawaii!
