Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Chunky rosefinch. Male is bright but not strongly patterned; note his orange-reddish head and bright red rump. Female is distinctive among rosefinches, with an olive-green body, gray belly, and bright yellow facial pattern. Breeds at and above treeline, in patches of stunted scrub; descends into similar habitat downhill in the winter. Like many other rosefinches, slow-moving and easy to overlook as it forages on the ground or in vegetation.
