Purple Finch - Haemorhous purpureus

Photo: Ann Cook; Adult; Male;
Song: Song is a series of fast, lively, brief musical phrases. Very similar to that of the House Finch, but faster and with fewer husky or burry tones, and of the Pine Grosbeak, but more lively and faster. Also reminiscent of Warbling Vireo. Purple Finch song ends on descending pitch; Warbling Vireo song ends on an ascending pitch.
