Purple Finch?


Recommended Posts

Although Purple Finches are not normal in our area, this year they have been, a bit of an irruption. I have identified some at me feeders before, but it has been a couple of months. I am thinking this might be one, but would appreciate your expertise. These pictures were taken today in north central Oklahoma.

That looks good to me for a purple finch! Red down the back, no heavy brown streaking on the sides, no white wingbars. Please wait until an actual expert chimes in before confirming though.
