Purple Finch

Purple Finch (Code 2)  5 March 2015

Area: Uncommon migrant and winter visitor, usually seen at feeders.  Some yards will retain them all winter, while others will not see any.

Yard:  Uncommon migrant and winter visitor.  Sometimes several birds will stick around for a  few weeks or more, other times months go by without seeing any in the yard.

Observations: First birds of the year were a pair that stopped in to the bird feeders briefly during a heavy snowstorm on 5 March 2015.  I only managed a quick documentary shot of the female (above) before they took off.
