INTERESTING FACTS

First-year birds tend to disperse further than adults which explains why colonizing birds are almost always dull-plumaged (young) males.
A group of rosefinches are collectively known as a "bouquet" of finches.

The Common Rosefinch is the most widespread finch found in Europe, where it spread from Asia. Its breeding grounds are located in Sweden, Siberia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Himalaya, Tibet, China and Japan. In winter months, they migrate to southern Iran, southeastern China, India, Burma and Indochina. Preferred habitats in the summer include thickets or woodlands, and edges of forests with rivers nearby. In winter months, they prefer gardens, orchards, swamps and dry oak forests. They build nests low in the trees, and typically produce a brood of 3-4 each breeding season. The conservation rating for the Common Rosefinch is Least Concern.
