Purple Finch


Purple finch
– this is another year-round resident that is somewhat migratory. Some years there are very few while in others they are plentiful, though they never show up in large flocks like the American goldfinch and pine siskin. The males add a welcome touch of colour. One field guide describes the male in spring breeding plumage as having been “dipped in raspberry sauce”. Purple finches will feed at both Niger thistle and black oil sunflower seed feeders.
