Meet The Pink Browed Rosefinch – The Flying Little Balls Of Cotton Candy (8 Pics)

Is it a raspberry? Is it cotton candy? ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿง๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŽ€

Meet the pink-browed rosefinch (Carpodacus rodochroa), a graceful finch in the family Fringillidae.

The male bird of the species has a bright, raspberry pink plumage, with clean ‘brows’ faint streaks on its back.

The female is more of a brown colour, with white eyebrows and light streaks on its cheeks and throat.

The bird can be found in the Himalayahs.

It prefers to live in forests, hillsides, and tropical high-altitude shrubland.

The bird has a diet of seeds, berries, grasses, and small herbs.

The female finch builds a nest about two metres above the ground during the breeding seasons, made from bark, moss and animal hair.
