Banded purple finches?

I noticed at my feeder today that there was a family of what I think are Purple Finches... when I looked closely with my binoculars, they all were banded! I managed to get a photo of the male. Just was curious about the bands? Are some purple Finches being handed in BC? Would love to know more. I am pretty sure they are Purple Finches.

I am unable to answer your question about banding, but I can share with you a few photos I have taken of purple finches.
