I saw this little bird when I uploaded the pics to my computer and immediately thought this is not a House Finch- its a Purple Finch.

Notice the ear coverlets that are so prominent on this one as they are on Puple Finch and the spotted red/purple chest and stomach. He seems more rounded in shape than the House Finch (which the Purple Finch would be).

I wish I could have gotten a shot of the tail but I wasn't thinking this might be anything new.

Unfortunately they were in deep shade or I might have been able to expose their color more.

I'll post 1 more pic.

I know this might be a tough one but what do you think? Thank You!
