Purple Finch

Purple FinchThis is the lst Purple Finch I’ve seen this Spring and he was a welcomed sight, I must say! Last summer I had many pairs of these birds and I sometimes get them confused with House Finches. Even though they are supposed to reside here all winter long, I looked at this particular bird as my first migrant. The weather is finally starting to cooperate this coming weekend, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some new migrants coming to our yard. Wish me luck and happy birding everyone!

      Thank you so much! I’m so excited to see more birds coming through now and we have a very nice weekend coming up where I can finally get outside and hopefully capture some more photos.

    Yes we do. I think our backyard is on a migratory path. I’ve had about 27 different species of warblers that come through each year and they are my favorite migrants! Can’t wait till their arrival!
