Great! These are purple finches, [males] with the females.
It looks like you're a bit ahead of the season, nothing has leafed out yet here.
What shrub or tree is this?
Here is a link that might be useful: I still think they're redheaded sparrows:)
Great photo! I can't seem to get a clear shot of one down here, but I'm really not sure if we have house finches or purple finches.
We always call them red-headed sparrows...;)
Male purple finch
wish i could get a nice close up like yours. how do you do that???
We have them here at certain times of the year.Good shots.
I think those are purple finches. House finches do not have that much color topside.
