The Purple Finch is one of several bright reddish coloured birds we have in New Brunswick.
Other birds include the Northern Cardinal, House Finch, Red Crossbill and the White-winged crossbill. We may sometimes get the Red Polls, but they have a lot less red then the Purple Finches seen here.
As you can see the female Purple Finch has no red at all making it hard to identify. However, this female was with three males. The beak was helpful in identifying the female. Pretty much the same as the male.
