Over the weekend, one male and one female Purple Finch visited the feeders… but at different times.

They like black oil sunflower seeds. They do not flit, like chickadees and titmice, so it is easy to get pictures of them.

Your backyard sunflower seed feeder is probably a great place to look for Purple Finches if you live within their winter range. This species moves very erratically from year to year, so if you don’t have them this year, there’s always a chance they’ll arrive next year.
