House Finch or Purple Finch?

Recommended Posts


Still learning about how to identify our friends. This one has been puzzling me, especially since I am unsure of the differences between a House Finch or Purple Finch enough to tell them apart. I have been calling these guys House Finches, but this one appears to be so much brighter red and more of it than the others in the small flock that comes to my feeder a couple times a day here in San Antonio.

House Finch. A Purple would have pinkish/red showing in the wings and flank as well. Some male House Finches show much brighter red than others.
