What is this bird?

This bird always comes to my feeder (i named it Bob) and he has the trade marks of a house finch and a purple finch (i don't know the difference between the two, if you know the difference please tell me) but he is much darker, and i don't know if he is a different species or is he just genetically that color?

Great page but I couldn't copy link right. Sorry. Cut and paste to your browser or google difference between house finch and purple finch!. The beak is the difference. Good luck!
