Smurfy, they might be English I’ll have to get my book out. I was never sure because they are a little bigger than purple finches. I put up some pictures way back on this thread but everybody kept saying female grosbeaks. If they are they’re all lesbians because I’ve yet to see a male?

the english have some orange and white on there heads!!!!!!!! and maybe a little yellow!!!!!

My book and the internet says English and House are the same thing. ——-The House Sparrow is perhaps the most adaptable and prolific bird species on the planet. Often called English Sparrow, its scientific name Passer domesticus is Latin for small, active bird belonging to the house. It is native to Europe and has spread to all corners of the world.Apr

i googled them too!!!!!!! not arguing but the dreaded house sparrow is one that will take over a bluebird house, whereas i havent seen the english sparrow do that. they definetly have different markings then the house sparrow as i learned to tell them apart!!!!!

 

anyway i prefer the smaller english sparrow with the different markings on there head!!!!!!! ?

Some of these have a very prominent red stripe over their eye. They aren’t in any of my books. Just killing my safflower. Have to see if I can get a picture.

Smurfy, NOPE! Over 1000 pictures yesterday and none of the ones I consider bigger than the purples. These are game camera pictures from a camera dangling from a piece of angle iron so not the best. Do you agree these are ALL female or young purple finches? At least I can start there.STC_0559.thumb.JPG.fc132da666933a40a75a70771cd93dcc.JPG

Up here I am seeing red and white breasted nuthatches, chickadees, blue jays and grouse hanging around the feeder. Due to bears I have only one feeder going and only put a little bit of seed in it at time. I haven't put any suet out yet but I do see downeys, hairys and a pileated once and awhile.
