Young female House Finch looks up at Dad in anticipation of being fed. This tender moment was beautifully captured by @d.d_photography in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

According to All About Birds, House Finches eat almost exclusively plant materials, including seeds, buds and fruits.

Wild foods include wild mustard seeds, knotweed, thistle, mulberry, poison oak, cactus, and many other species.

In orchards, House Finches eat cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, plums, strawberries, blackberries, and figs.

At feeders they eat black oil sunflower over the larger, striped sunflower seeds, millet, and milo.
