Because birds can not make the colors bright red or yellow directly, the red of the male House Finch actually come from the pigments found in the foods he eats during molt and the more pigment found in the food, the redder he is! This is why you sometimes will see a yellow or orange male House Finch!

This bird has been needle felted, which is a time consuming process where wool roving has been poked repeatedly by a barbed needle until the desired shape is formed. Great care has been taken to accurately depict his markings, size and color. He stands on sturdy wire feet and has black glass eyes and is life size at 6 inches in length.

In the photos there are two different house finch markings and sizes. The larger gray one is the size and markings I researched while making this bird for one of my customers, but the house finches she has at her feeder in Texas were smaller at 5 inches and browner in color. Therefore, I decided to offer either type of finch for this listing. Please specify if you would like the larger gray finch or the smaller brown finch.

Your bird is custom made once you place your order and payment is received***. I usually ship your order within 7-10 days of payment, but please allow me up to 3 weeks to get your order done, especially during busy holiday times or for multiple orders. Gift certificates are now available in my shop! During the Christmas rush, I am overloaded with orders by the end of October, so please order early!

Please remember that these birds are not intended for small children.

***I have a limited amount of birds in my inventory ready to ship out within 2 days. Please refer to my announcement on the first page of my shop for an updated listing of what is available.
