The Brown-capped Rosy-Finch breeds only on alpine tundra from southern Wyoming to southern Colorado. Audubon's climate model predicts that only 3% of this finch's current winter range will have a similar climate to today.⠀

Wanted! Observations of Brown-Capped Rosy Finches. 
Not considered dangerous!  Breed in alpine regions (above 11,000’) often seen on snowfields near cliffs and talus slopes in Colorado and the Snowy Range in Wyoming. Frequently observed at bird feeders at higher elevations in winter. Especially interested in observations of banded birds http://June-August. If seen, do not approach closely but observe carefully with binoculars. 
Submit observations including number of birds, band colors and leg (bird’s L or R), photos and exact location or location description to rosyfinchreports@gmail.com, eBird or the BCRF page on http://CitSci.org. 
Questions? luke.george@birdconservancy.org. Photo by Jacob Spendelow. Download a flyer with more information: https://bit.ly/2IfdUZj

We were told by a birder to stop at a pull off spot and search for Brown-capped rosey finches. We didn’t find any 🤣😂 we really looked for them too. However, that was in June 2017, maybe they are there now 😉

Snapped this with my iPhone camera thru my binocular lens today on my front porch... #browncappedrosyfinch #rosyfinch #birdlady #bird #colorado
Brown-capped Rosy Finch. Like the other rosy-finches, the Brown-capped Rosy-Finch is a bird of the high mountains, breeding above timberline. It has the smallest range of the three American species, being found primarily in #Colorado. 
This is a part of my 100 birds project.

Once you start getting bird tattoos it’s hard to stop getting bird tattoos, but why would you want to stop when there are so many awesome birds? The Brown-capped Rosy-Finch is (almost) endemic to Colorado (swipe for a range map). So this is one of my favorite birds and a symbol to f the most awesome state I’m fortunate to call home. .

A team of Wild Connections, USFS & @birdconservancyoftherockies are banding #browncappedrosyfinch this week in South Park!  Brown-capped Rosy Finch breeding range is almost entirely in CO, however their numbers have declined 95% over the last 50 years.  This data will help the Bird Conservancy better understand this alarming decline. More info at: https://birdconservancy.org/sirens-of-the-mountaintops/  Special thanks to Wild Connections’ @misiballard for photos and hosting this event.

Although often over looked when compared to the striking colors of the other Rosy-Finches, the Brown-capped Rosy-Finch actually has the most pink out of the three North American species!  This beautiful After Second Year male shows off his bright pink belly and underwings as he takes off.  The pink on these birds usually doesn’t standout as much when compared to the overall brown color of the body but they sure do glow when you pay attention!  #birdbanding #birdringing #birdresearch #RioGrandeBirdResearch #browncappedrosyfinch #rosyfinch #plumage #mountainfinches #mountainbirds #winterbirds #ornithology #birdrelease #slowmotion #slowmobird #slowmo #iphone6 #ios

Rosy-Finches of the Sandia Mountains.  We see three species of Rosy-Finch most years at the Sandia Crest.  The top left picture is a Black Rosy-Finch which breeds in the central Rockies from northern Utah to southwestern Montana.  The top right picture is a Brown-capped Rosy-Finch which has the smallest range of the North American Rosy-Finches breeding almost exclusively in Colorado and small parts of New Mexico and Wyoming.  The bottom row are two subspecies of the Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch which has the largest range of the three species.  The bottom left picture is the Interior subspecies (gray only on the crown) which breeds in the northern Rockies.  The right picture is the Hepburn’s subspecies (entire gray face) which breeds at lower elevations and closer to the coast from Northern California up to Alaska.  Nothing is quite like the experience of trying to pick out the different species of a large swirling flock of Rosy-Finches as they descend on a feeder!  #birdbanding #birdringing #birdresearch #RioGrandeBirdResearch #rosyfinch #blackrosyfinch #browncappedrosyfinch #graycrownedrosyfinch #finches #mountainfinches #mountainbirds #winterbirds #ornithology #birdsrule #sandiamountains

Brown-capped Rosy-Finches like to spend their winters in open areas like parks, meadows and open valleys. ⠀

At an elevation of 10,678 feet, the Sandia Crest has become a favorite wintering ground for all three species of rosy-finch.

Michael snapped this photo of a Brown-capped Rosy-Finch in 6-degree weather with 20 mph winds (windchill of -15 degrees). ⠀

#tbt to ABA Camp Colorado last summer! Seeing this #browncappedrosyfinch at the Lava Cliffs in Rocky Mountain National Park last July was one of my highlights of 2016. This was my ABA lifer #300! #birdsunder21

Started playing with the burst feature on my phone and got these great shots of an After Second Year male Brown-capped Rosy-Finch!  #birdbanding #RioGrandeBirdResearch #rosyfinches #mountainfinches #browncappedrosyfinch #iphone6s #ios
Rosy-Finches are a very interesting and beautiful bird!  These very cold adapted birds breed at high elevations (above tree line) in the mountains of the western half of North America.  In winter these birds form large nomadic flocks and descend into lower elevations in search of food.  The Sandia Crest in the mountains east of Albuquerque, New Mexico is a famous winter location for all three species of Rosy-Finches.  This male Brown-capped Rosy-Finch breeds almost exclusively in Colorado and historically (and maybe still) in the northern mountains of New Mexico.  These birds often make up the bulk of our flocks in most years, though these birds' numbers fluctuate greatly due to snow.  #birdbanding #RioGrandeBirdResearch #birdrelease #browncappedrosyfinch #rosyfinches #mountainfinches #slowmo #slowmobird

The brown-capped rosy finch! Lives primarily in Colorado and is estimated to have 45,000 breeding pairs, all of which came to eat at the feeder. #browncappedrosyfinch

At an elevation of of 12,183 (it felt like 22,183) I thought I was hallucinating seeing this little guy hopping around. It's a Lifer🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟✨🌟

Was commissioned by bird lover @nix_on_that from Washington. Well honor and request. Thanks Hannah #mountainchickadee #browncappedrosyfinch
Brown-capped Rosy-Finch in the town of Gould, Jackson County, Colorado. Lifer #297! Now I just need to find the other 2 Rosy-Finch species before I have to wait till next winter. They are awesome birds. #Bird #Birding #Wildlife #BrowncappedRosyFinch #Nature #Outdoors #NaturePhotography #WildlifePhotography #Nikon #Snow #Mountains #March #Colorado
