Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

The Przevalksi’s Pinktail is the only member of its family. It looks like a cross between a rosefinch and a bunting, but it isn’t closely related to either. Male is streaky brown above with a bright pink flush extending from the throat down to the tail sides. Female is streaky brown all over. Both sexes may be confused with rosefinches, but the pinktail is more slender, smaller-billed, and longer-tailed. Male gives a chattering song, sometimes while in flight. Inhabits shrubby highland hillsides.
