From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Common Rosefinch (Carpodacus erythrinus) is the most widespread and common rosefinch of Asia and Europe.
The Common Rosefinch is larger than a sparrow. It has a stout and conical bill. The mature male has brilliant rosy-carmine head, breast and rump; heavy bill; dark brown wings with two indistinct bars, and a white belly. Females and young males are dull-colored with yellowish-brown above, brighter on the rump and greyer on head; buff below.
It has spread westward through Europe in recent decades, even breeding in England once. Common Rosefinches breed from the Danube valley, Sweden, and Siberia to the Bering Sea; the Caucasus, northern Iran and Afghanistan, the western Himalayas, Tibet and China; to Japan between latitudes 25° and 68°. In winter they are found from southern Iran to south-east China India, Burma, and Indochina.
They are found in summer in thickets, woodland and forest edges near rivers and in winter in gardens and orchards, wetlands and locally in dry oak woods.

Hello Razvan,
I have never seen a Rosefinch before, but it looks very similar to our House Finch and Purple Finches. Nice capture, he seems to have a look of suspicion on his face. I'm sure he was wondering.."what in the world is that fellow pointing at me". I like the little twinkle in his eye and beautiful coloration.

Hi Razvan,
Great capture of this Common Rosefinch.
