There was a big flock of Purple Finches visiting the feeders on Easter Sunday. I couldn’t decide which of the above photos I liked better, so I posted both. On the second photo the latin name, or scientific name, is displayed. You will notice that the second word, purpureus is where the Purple name comes in. But if you research the meaning of the Latin word, purpureus, it means purple, but also includes reddish, violet,¬†and brownish.
