Subject: [CT Birds] Unusual plumaged Purple Finch?
While watching my feeders today I thought I had a female Purple Finch, until I noticed a pink wash to the throat.  I took some pictures and also noticed the pink markings on the scapulars and edges to the flight feathers and tail.  I'm guessing it's a first year male?  Pictures on ebird report below.
