Common Rosefinch on Texel

This special species migrates in small numbers in spring mainly from mid-May to June. The European breeding area of the Common Rosefinch extends from Scandinavia to Central Europe and further east to Russia. In the Netherlands it is an incidental breeding bird, especially along the Dutch coast and on the Wadden Islands. Their wintering area is in India and Southeast Asia! The striking vocals are loud and resemble the English 'pleased to meet you' with some imagination. Adult males are beautifully colored with a red head, chest and rump. Females and immature birds are dull brown.
