The House Finch is a bird in the finch family Fringillidae, which is found in North America. This species and the other "American rosefinches" are usually placed in the rosefinch genus ''Carpodacus''. It has been proposed to place them in a distinct genus ''Burrica'', but the American Ornithologists Union rejected a proposal to do so in 2008.
