The finches are large-billed birds that can be found throughout North America.

There are three types of finches; the House Finch has the widest territory and can be found right across all of the United States and the southern regions of Canada. The Purple Finch can be found across the southern portion of Canada but only in the eastern regions of the United States and mostly during migration periods. The Cassin's Finch has only a small range in the Rocky Mountains in Canada but can be found as far as Mexico in its migration routes.
