Is this a Purple Finch? (Northern California) (1 Viewer)


United States
Spotted in a wetlands area in Northern California this month (July). I am thinking it could be a Purple Finch?

Thanks -- at first I thought it was a House Finch but then reading about common habitats I was leaning toward Purple Finch.
