Birders, After reviewing more photos of the finches I had this a.m., I'm not so sure of the Purple Finch ID. I have a photo of the female's beak and it looks pointed. I never did see the streaking on the breast of the bird as it stayed in the tray. I was basing my ID on the head pattern and nothing else as I saw no other field marks. Comments welcome.
