Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Attractive medium-sized rosefinch. Male has a bright pink face and underparts; unlike the male Himalayan White-browed Rosefinch, he lacks the dark line through the eye, and so does not have an “eyebrowed” appearance. Female is streaky brown all over with paler underparts. Breeds in semi-open scrub, forests, and forest edge at around 3000-4800 meters. Winters in scrubby hilly habitat, sometimes at lower altitudes. Forages on the ground in pairs or small flocks. Commonly gives a rapid series of nasal bleats.
