This chapter introduces the House Finch as a study bird. A bird that was introduced to the eastern U.S. in the mid-20th century, it is most abundant in urbanized areas where it nests in nooks on buildings and can be attracted to nest boxes. It can be captured in traps and kept in captivity, making it an ideal study bird.
