Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Rosy-Finches

Enter Bird's Name in Search Box:


The rosy-finches live in the highest altitude of all finches found in North America. There are three types of rosy-finches found on the North American continent. These finches are seen in large flocks and are often seen visiting local birdfeeders in the winter months.

The rosy-finches all have similar appearances but are identified by different plumage. The Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch has three sub-species or races, the interior race, the exterior race or Hepburn's and a race found in the western regions of Alaska and out onto the ocean islands. The Black Rosy-Finch is found in the mountains of the western states. The Brown-capped Rosy-Finch is found in a small area of three central states.
