Purple Finch male 2-20121025

On our first morning since returning to Illinois, Mary Lou and I got out early to the east side Nelson Lake/Dick Young Forest Preserve in Batavia, Kane County. We immediately encountered a flock of 20+ Purple Finches that ranged from the observation platform into the woodlands to the south. Only one or two were in adult male plumage. We only were able to stay for about a half hour. Visit
