Is this a house finch or Female Purple Finch?

The streaking on the breast makes me think it's one of the finches and not sparrow

I think this is a young bird, so we can't yet tell whether it's a female or male.

Either way, the facial pattern isn't strong enough for Purple, and the streaking on the breast and sides is blurry like a Housie.  I'm not sure how reliable a mark it is, but the few Purples I've seen have a purplish hue to the legs.
