Females and young birds have dusky brown streaks.
Range: Breeds from southern Alaska across southern Canada and throughout the United

This bird is a common sight along the backroads of Indiana. They are very fond of
Sunflower seeds and the males can be very agressive to down right nasty at feeders.
