Looks like I have been honored with some visiting Purple Finches this winter. If they hang around Ihope to be able to get some decent photos in various poses. There appears to be at least a couple pair of them visiting my feeders.

Oh wow, I've been looking for one of these this year. Nice detail on the feathers and color! I havn't seen the Purple finch yet but I'm getting the standard red house finch and an Orange morph...

Thanks, Bob, Kent, and Donna for the comments. Donna, the ones here seem to be very wary...although they don't mind eating the food :-)

Beautiful colours! I don't think they live around here so it is nice to see them posted.

Cheers

Jim

I don't know that you could do much better than this one.
