Purple Finch or House Finch

Purple Finch or House Finch which is it? It is a challenge filming small birds foraging naturally away from feeders like this voracious very red male Finch catching insects on wet tree leaves in the morning, even more challenging to identify them on the fly high in the tree canopy. House Finches are relatively common, Purple Finches less so, but the give away on this very red House Finch is the heavy streaking on sides and belly, and less noticeable the less notched tail than a Purple Finch.
