Bird Photos / Purple FinchLast Update: 11/18/2012
Joyce and I saw these Purple Finches near the Precipice parking lot at Acadia National Park, ME on June 24th, 2010. The first bird is a male.
The female is not red or purple. The streaking is finer than that on a House Finch.
I saw a number of females in the Turkey Point area of Cecil County, MD in late October 2010.
Several ragged looking females visited our feeders in late October 2012.
I saw this one at a fellow bird club member's house in Harford County, MD on November 17th, 2012.
