Yes, those pesky unanswered questions. Here’s one for you.
Why do they call this bird a purple finch?? Does he look purple to you? No, he looks red, doesn’t he?
Red, I tell you! Did the group of guys that got together to name all the birds not know their colors? Purple finch?? That’s just….wrong….
What is it about guys and colors? Do you think they know the color “coral”? No, they’d call it orange, wouldn’t they? No idea of the subtleties of shades and hues. Okay, I rest my case. This bird is named incorrectly. The end.
