Cassin's Finch
Haemorhous cassinii

f4.5 @ 1/1000s, ISO:1000, Nikon D3S w 500mm

"Cassin's Finch," Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Adult males are raspberry red on the head, breast, back and rump; their back and undertail are streaked. Cassin's finch, along with the purple finch and house finch, was formerly placed in the genus Carpodacus, along with the rosefinches of Eurasia. However, the three North American species are not closely related to the Old World rosefinch radiation, and thus have been moved to the genus Haemorhous by most taxonomic authorities.
