Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Gray finch-like bird with an oddly elongated bill. It is only found in boulder fields and other rocky areas of the high Andes, usually above treeline. Females are browner than males, and young birds are faintly streaked. Long bill and white smudge below eye distinguish it from Plumbeous Sierra-Finch. Always found on or near rocks, and often perches with its head tilted upward.
