What kind of a bird is this? (House Finch)

What kind of a bird is this? He's so gorgeous! The picture doesn't seem to bring out the colors like they showed in real life. He's got bright reddish pink on his head and chest. I looked out the window one day and saw a bird in our tree, it looked like a miniature parrot, it was so cute. I grabbed my camera but couldn't get very good pictures. Just wondered if any "bird lovers" knew what it was.

If you can find a bird book, this bird could be a house finch, also known as a purple finch.

Actually, the Purple Finch and the House Finch are 2 different species. They look very similar and this bird could be either! :)

It does look like a purple finch but I don't see them as being in Utah:

This is a male House Finch - Not a Purple Finch.

I know this is a house finch. Purple finches are much brighter red and a little darker, Finches like to eat black sunflower seeds, white millet and safflower.

If you'd like to coax goldfinches, put out some Nyjer Thistle seed.

Purple finches are not the same as house finches.
