See recordings of a Purple/Cassins Finch in this checklist.
Song or call & method of delivery: Call type sounds good for the eastern subspecies of Purple Finch per me (Colby Neuman). I m not an observer, but the person (Erin H.) with the recording has been unresponsive, and I don t want the recordings to be deleted or lost because that documentation is critical for the record.
