Beautiful Finch of Some Sort

In spite of the rain (and occasional snow flurries still!), we are getting a variety of songbirds.  They are lovely to wake up to in the morning.  This little critter, some sort of finch, was eating outside the kitchen window.

I am afraid the focus was not great--I was close enough, and with enough zoom, that not every part was in equal focus.  It appears to be a House Finch.

  1. That is a purple finch. They are more red than purple and it will brighten more toward the summer. We have many of them here in the east.
