PIC OF THE WEEK: 11/28/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: This Purple Finch completes the final missing puzzle piece to the “Attracting Birds With Water” Program as a result of a move from Bedford County to Richmond, Virginia in 2006. It’s hard to believe that it took a decade to recapture an image of this plumage of this species. The female has visited a time or two over the last few years but the male with its raspberry-colored plumage and chocolate brown facial stripe had not previously appeared at The Bird Spa. One contributing factor might be that this species tends to prefer to winter closer to the mountains to the west, but it is found throughout the state during the non-breeding season. They are year-round residents just to the north of Virginia all the way to the U.S.-Canadian border. Others breed well into northern and central Canada in the coniferous forests, or mixed deciduous woodlands. There is also a population west of the Rocky Mountains. This seed-eater is often confused with our local House Finch, which is has a more orange-red coloration and lacks the strong face stripe. The arrival of this colorful finch is another sure sign that winter is on its way.
