House or Purple?

I think the streaks are there but not very distinct in that lighting.

Cassin's less likely at that location? and would have a more pointed bill (he says, never having seen a Cassin's).

Purple should have colour over the brown streaking on the flanks here. It's also the wrong red IMO and structurally doesn't have the defensive tackle look of a PUFI. (Somebody here shared the fantastic comparison that HOFI:PUFI is like SOSP:FOSP)

I would be interested in learning what defines this bird as a HOFI.

Sorry this was what I was commenting on above, and showing the streaking for the other post. I can't figure out how to quote two comments on my phone.

Hit the plus button next to the quote button on the first post you want to quote, then do the same thing for the second. Then hit this:
