Gray-Crowned Rosy-Finch

Leucosticte tephrocotis

Rosy-Finches are remarkably handsome birds. All rosy finches live in an alpine or tundra environment. The Gray-crowned Rosy Finch has a wide range and large numbers throughout Alaska, and western Canada and the United States. My meetings with this species were in the Sierra-Nevada mountains west of Bishop California in the community of Aspendell.
