purple spring girl

These guys have been hanging out at my birdfeeder lately. They always come together, and they move fast! It was hard to get a good picture. They're finches and I'm pretty sure they're purple finches. Isn't the male gorgeous? I looked them up. Roger Tory Peterson (I just invested in his Field Guide to Birds of Western North America) said the male looked like he's been dipped in raspberry juice. Which is about right!
