Pallas's Rosefinch

Carpodacus roseus

The Pallas's rosefinch, a member of the finch family Fringillidae, is a bird of considerable charm. It measures approximately 16 to 17.5 centimeters in length, presenting as a medium-sized to large slender rosefinch with a notably long and notched tail.

Identification Tips

When endeavoring to identify this species, one should note its size and tail shape. The Pallas's rosefinch is distinguished by its slender build and the distinctive notch at the end of its tail.

Habitat

The natural habitats of the Pallas's rosefinch are the boreal forests and boreal shrubland, where it finds refuge and sustenance.

Distribution

This species is known to reside across a range of countries in Asia, including China, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Mongolia, and Russia. There have been occasional reports of sightings further west, and records exist of the bird being seen in several European regions, including Britain. However, the involvement of these birds in the cage-bird trade complicates the assessment of their true origin.

Conservation status

The Pallas's rosefinch is currently classified as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List, indicating that, at present, it does not face an immediate threat of extinction in its natural environment.

Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!
