Purple finch, male.


Last April.
A nice breeding male purple finch at the pond one year ago. None around this year that look like this.

Haemorhous purpureus
Birds that eat fruits are doing plants a favor by distributing their seeds later on. But finches eat the seeds themselves. Though they may not look the part, finches are predators. From a seed's point of view, these birds' hefty beaks mark the end of the line.
