Purple Finches at Stony Creek Metropark

Yesterday I found a dozen Purple Finches at the beginning of the East Lake Trails at Stony Creek Metropark. These trails are found on the road to the nature center… Park in the Osprey Trail parking lot, walk out to the main road and walk down past the bridge and the trailhead will be on the right hand side… There are tall pines on both side of the road and the Purple Finches and Pine Siskins feed on the tiny pinecombs in the trees… they are loaded this year, so they will probably stick around for a few days…

  1. Hi Paul
    Thanks for the nice location for the Purple Finches. I got out Sunday morning and found them with no problem with your directions.
