Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Graceful medium-sized rosefinch of the Himalayas. Male is bright raspberry pink with a clean “browed” facial pattern and faint streaking on the back. Female is brown with streaked buffy underparts, broad white eyebrows, and lightly streaked pale cheeks and throat. Favors subalpine forest edge and grassy hillsides with scrubby cover in the breeding season; descends in the winter, using similar habitat in the foothills. Gives a loud, insistent “teeLEE!”
