Purple Finch

Purple Finch, Kennebunk Maine

I have seen several pics of Purple Finches over the past few days, posted on Facebook from around the country. They must be moving through on their way north. This one appeared yesterday on our back deck under the bird feeders in the fresh falling snow, so I scattered some seed. I had to shoot through two layers of thermal glass in the sliding door. If I even got close enough to the glass to cast a shadow, the birds (this finch and a bunch of Dark-eyed Juncos) were off and away. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. -.3EV 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 400.
