STOKES BIRDING BLOG: Purple Finches Coming By!


Howdy PUFI!! This feminine/imm.male Purple Finch stopped by yesterday, jockeying for house on the feeder with the “going for the gold” American Goldfinches who’re getting feisty as they molt into their yellow breeding plumage. First-year male Purple Finches look streaky brown like females so they can not reliably be distinguished within the discipline. Inform these Purple Finches from feminine Home Finches by their white eyebrow. Hope she/he reaches the breeding space and efficiently produces extra PUFIs.

PUFI is the bander’s four-letter code for PUrple FInch.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
