Today wednesday March 13th 2019 at around 1:00pm. I observed a Male Purple Finch with orange feathers on the crown and nape. It also had yellow feathers on the upper tail coverts. It was seen in a group of about 10 purple finches males and females. This was in my back yard 5.75 miles up Albion Ridge road. Also observed Dark eyed Junco, Chestnut backed Chickadee, Fox Sparrow, Hermit Thrush, Spotted Towhee, Mourning Dove, Bandtailed Pigeon, Stellars Jay, Common Raven
