I googled the house finch. Funny, birds are often the opposite of humans. The guys are so beautiful, the gals dull or plain. With us it's the opposite... and I'm glad for that!aranoid:

Me, too, but there is a simple explanation - it has to do with sex roles. Male birds are colorful to attract females as they conspicuously advertise their territories, and females are plain so they won't attract predators to the nest while they incubate. If human females laid eggs, we'd be that way too! :shock:
