Common Rosefinch

Carpodacus erythrinus

A predominantly spring vagrant in the Pribilofs, which is very rare at all times, this species has also been found during the summer and fall. It is a late spring migrant that has only been found during mid-June, which is later than most similar species. The sole summer record from early July is likely a failed breeding bird, while the fall records from early and late September are within the normal range of passerine vagrants at that season and similar to other Carpodacus (and similar) finches.
