I'd like to introduce you to someone. He's a little red bird. He comes to visit us every morning at work and taps on our window to say things like, "Hi" or "What is that, a cinammon raisin bagel? Lucky."

His name is Tappy and we love him.

We love him so much we gave him a bird feeder. Because that's what you get when you tap your way into someone's heart. A tube of seeds.

Here's a quick video of him using his powers of tapping. The audio isn't good, but I think you might be able to hear some tapping if you turn it up.

We are very curious to know exactly what type of bird he is. One of you people must know someone who is a hard-core bird expert. Can you please help us classify Tappy?

Here's what we know:

- He lives in Los Angeles
- He's small like a sparrow
- He's mostly red
- He taps

I consulted the Immaturist's Guide to Birdwatching, but it was no help at all.

UPDATE: He's definitely a male HOUSE FINCH. On behalf of Tappy, thanks, guys!!!
