purple or house finch? LI NY April 2019

Recommended Posts

Going through some old photos, these were taken back in April 2019 at Robert Moses SP on Long Island NY. I'm thinking its a House Finch but since a Purple Finch would be a lifer for me I just want to be sure. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

It's a House Finch.  Purple Finches are more of a reddish-pink color and they have reddish wingbars.
