This is a house finch, not a purple. The bill shape isnt correct, and it lacks the head striping and overall all raspberry coloring. It also has a striped belly, which the purple's do not.

True, I feel I'm inadequate in the bird identifying but some I do know

Purple Finch

Now THAT! is a purple finch! And one dandy of a shot! That might be my favorite one of yours thus far

I saw my first one this year, and she was a fatality from window collision at my house :(

Oh! Thanks for the clarification. I've never seen a House Finch. Looks a lot like a Purple Finch. :-)

It is a Jay :-) He had a bit of an argument with a couple of magpies.
