The male house finch (Haemorhous mexicanus) is a beautiful red finch during breeding season. We see numerous house finches at the feeders in Central Park, and it is always a joy to see them. They love thistle and black oil sunflower seeds. I haven't yet done the Filming the Feathers video, but one will happen! Meanwhile, a couple of photos from March 2018.
