Another bird that I don’t see too often, only during spring migration if I’m lucky. A whole flock of them came to our bird feeder on April 11/20 – snow storm day.
The gray-crowned rosy finch, or gray-crowned rosy-finch, is a species of passerine bird in the family Fringillidae native to Alaska, western Canada, and the north-western United States. Due to its remote and rocky alpine habitat it is rarely seen. There are currently six recognized subspecies.
One Response to “Gray-Crowned Rosy Finch”
At the time of this posting there have been 135 hits on Facebook’s FeederWatch site, which I posted on behalf of Marlene. Surprisingly, many people never heard of Gray-crowned Rosy Finch, and/or have never seen them. As I live in Ontario, we’re unlikely to ever see them here. They are lovely birds and you were so lucky to have seen them.
