Purple Finch Feast

We have had an influx of Purple Finches for the last two days. They seem to like our platform feeder which is filled with hulled sunflower and a quality mix. I just love their purple color, more of a raspberry red than the tomato red of a male House Finch. We had three males feeding at the same time, a feast for them and a feast for our eyes.
Have a nice bird-filled weekend.

Purple Finches have such great color! I noticed some variation in one recently; I've heard it has to do with their diet.

I love your bird photos! We have a lot of purple finches at our feeder also, and not much else besides blackbirds. The finches are so cute!
