Some of America?s Avian Treasures
MAY 24, 2020
North America is home to many amazing bird species, including several which require a special effort to see and appreciate. Breeding only above treeline on windswept and desolate rock faces (or equally austere habitats on the Aleutians), the three American rosy-finches (Gray-crowned, Black, and Brown-capped) are extreme environment specialists that are endemic to North America. In the summer, they are the highest altitude breeding songbird in North America.
