Your missing House Finches are all at my house! I’ve been actively feeding the birds through our Whatcom windstorm which thankfully has calmed down. Overall the diversity is lower than usual: about a hundred juncos, a half dozen towhees and Fox Sparrows, a couple White-crowns and Songs, and a surprisingly large number of House Finches - about 40. On the suet: both chickadees, flickers, and a male Downy.
Most cold snaps I also have quite a few Purple Finches and often a White-throated - one winter I had three! I’m also missing the regular Golden-crowns, Steller’s Jays, and Bushtits.

Suddenly a bit of red appeared in the snow, a single house finch.
