Purple Finch or House Finch?

Recommended Posts

East Central Alabama on March 15, 2023

Haven't seen many Purple Finches here in a couple of years.  So now we have a few birds mixed in with the House Finches and they are a richer, darker color and no streaking on the breast.  I have not yet seen any female Purple Finches, so maybe I'm wishful thinking?

It's a House Finch. 

Even with no flank streaking at all? That’s the most intense and extensive raspberry red I’ve ever seen on a House Finch. Not saying it isn’t one, but just wondering if this was a known variation or something.
