[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Though I believe that this is a Vinaceous Rosefinch, it could also be the Scarlet Finch. I found this calling out loud behind the thick undergrowth of the tall shrubs inside Valley Of Flowers, Uttaranchal.

I wished I could have taken several other shots from different POV so that the actual vivid color of the finch could have been captured..

These birds are residents of Himalayas spreading from Himachal to Nepal & also N.E Himalayas.. Male is dark crimson/scarlet with darker wing & tail..

Voice is loud pleasing twee..

Habitat - understorey in moist, broad leaved forests..
