First Purple Finch of winter shows up in spring

Photos by Barry the Birder
Carpodacus purpureus
It took the whole winter and then some for a Purple Finch to show up at our  backyard feeders but it finally happened more than a month into spring.   The wait was worth though as it is such a colourful visitor, especially when it perches with the male goldfinches.

Please comment if you wish.

I had a smile looking at the second picture. It reminded me of "hide and seek". Cute.
