Yeah, for mine too! I think what Avery is trying to say is that House Finches have obvious streaking on the flanks and sometimes on the red as well, whereas Purple Finches have plain red without any streaking.

Not at all, but that is another mark to use 😂 

 

I guess I forgot to say that my thought were on the facial patterning.
