Gray-crowned Rosy Finch
This lovely finch arrives in our winter months to Homer, Alaska in large flocks.
Leucosticte tephrocotis Order: PASSERIFORMES Family: FRINGILLIDAE
I believe this finch from Homer, Alaska is a "Hepburn’s Rosy-Finch" having less pink on the wings and flanks.
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. It is one of four species of rosy finches.
