House Finch: "Rollicking, cheerful song, with buzzy slurred notes at the end of several phrases. A Scrub-Jay calls in the middle a few times. At 28 seconds an Oak Titmouse starts calling too. At the end a Song Sparrow sings. --- Finches usually sing discrete songs but very often will just go on and on incessantly. American and Lesser Goldfinches and Pine Siskins do this as well. There's really no other species (aside from Mockingbirds and Thrashers) that pour forth a stream of song like that without stopping. If it's singing cheerfully in an unending stream without stopping for minutes on end, it's gotta be a Finch of some kind." (Jessica Griffiths)
