This male Purple Finch is another summer resident at our lake home. He’s very colorful, but the female is much plainer. If you imagine all the red on this bird changing to white, that’s what a female would look like. We usually get several pairs of Purple Finches nesting around our home. Later in the summer their newly hatched fledglings join them at our feeders and they become our most numerous species.
