Does anyone know what this bird is? It comes to our bird-feeder.

Could it be a Purple House Finch?

Cassin's Finch

We have several very similar birds that frequent our feeder and I believe they're Cassin's Finches?

This is a Purple Finch. I have a male and female that come to my feeder.

A House Finch has some pink on his head, but not nearly as brilliant as the Purple Finch.

Redpoll perhaps? I see a lot of these ones during the winter here.
