Purple Finch or House Finch?


Recommended Posts

Bmurphy,  location and date are always helpful for ID's, but in this finch I can see a great deal of red in the breast  where a House Finch would have more brownish streaks. Around the eye you would see a lot more  brown and there would be more brown on the back side of the head. Purple finch is my call.
