Forestville, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A tough one to ID but this is definitely a Purple not a House Finch. Deeply notched tail, purple head with an even darker crown and his back is edged with pink. A prominent local birder of the past named Roger Tory Peterson once described them as sparrows dipped in raspberry juice.
