Not a typo, it actually was a Purple Finch that stopped by a feeder, here in the yard, yesterday.

I got some photos, which turned out not too bad, considering that they were taken through a screen window. Will post them later.

This variant got on David Sibley's radar in 2012:

Let's see if this individual hangs around; otherwise, per the Sibley post, he is probably on the way to Nova Scotia.
