Dark-breasted rosefinch (Procarduelis nipalensis)

Dark-breasted rosefinch (Procarduelis nipalensis) is a beautiful high-elevation dweller, seen here around the Tungnath temple during the full moon of April 2018. The winters are harsh here, but on the last day of April the landscape is full of alpine flowers and warm sunshine.

It blends well in the landscape and is hard to spot when still on the ground.

It sounds like this:

Elevation: 3496 meters
