Purple Finch or Purpley House Finch?

Recommended Posts

House Finch. They get there colors from the berries that they eat. They can be from orange to a purpely color, just depending on what berries it eats.If it where a purple finch, in the front there would be no brown. Instead it would be white with purpleish red stripes. Also, the wings are all brown on the bird you have taken a picture of. That is a House Finch's wings. In the Purple Finch, it would be a mix of purple and brown and white. And the brown on the wings is a dark brown color. House Finches are light brown. Therefore, it is a House Finch not a Purple Finch.
