Notice the raised crown feathers on this male Purple Finch.
Now lets take a look at a male House Finch. It is interesting that House Finches will visit a suet feeder but I have yet to see a Purple Finch do so. Can you see the differences?
Now....let's hear it for the females! I feel very lucky to get this shot of both a female House Finch (on the left) and a female Purple Finch (on the right) at my feeder! Notice that the female Purple Finch has a white eye stripe.
