Species on the move: Purple Finch

Andrew Farnsworth The Cornell Lab Aug 31, 2020

Purple Finch is on the move. Check out the slide show below depicting recent eBird observations by week during August 2020. Scroll through from the first to fourth images and you will see each additional week’s observations added to the map (e.g. purples are earliest, yellows are latest observations). What will this fall hold for the intensity and extent of this year’s movement?

Go out and carefully identify this species, then submit your observations to eBird!
