Every time I see a Purple Finch, I get excited. This was a life list bird for me not too long ago. However, I've YET to see a male!  We seem to only get one, lone female visiting.  I keep thinking that one of these days, she's going to find the man of her dreams and bring him along!  So far, no dice!  But, I got a couple of nice shots of her today...
