I think you're right, @lonesome55dove, that the beak is too rounded for a siskin, but I'm leaning House Finch because I don't see a face pattern.  @STUDAR I'd like to see more photos if you have any.

Yes, I expect you are right on the House Finch. I studied the bill for quite a while and thought that it fit a Purple best but I failed to look at any other features such as the facial pattern which is definitely a key factor in this ID. Thanks for your help.  🙂
