This bird stopped by yesterday, and I thought it was a mature female at first. Then I noticed yellow scattered throughout the bird and light streaking which I haven’t seen before. I have seen this color in house finches but not purple, and I can’t find much information about it. 
Is it just an immature (male?) purple finch? 
Thanks for any information!

Yes, Purple Finch. Either a female or a young male. This type of coloring isn't too unusual.

Oh that’s so cool... a yellow Purple Finch! Great shots too, by the way!
