I took this picture today in Southwest Wisconsin.  The orange is throwing me on what type of bird this is.  I assume an immature bird but not sure which one.

Thanks in advance

I didn't know Purples had color variations like Houses.  Aren't the adult male Purps always raspberry?

It's rare.  I don't think anyone knows whether they are males with odd colors or females with hormone issues or what.
