I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds.

Cassins Finch

Cassin’s Finch (male)
The Cassin’s Finch, Carpodacus cassinii, is a medium-sized finch of the Rosefinch genus.

Cassin’s Finches are found from British Columbia and Alberta to Zacatecas and San Luis Potos. Their breeding habitat is coniferous forest in mountains of western North America as far south as northern New Mexico and Arizona; also Southern California near Baja California. They nest in a large conifer. They move to lower elevations in winter.

Identification Tips:
• Length: 6 inches
• Conical bill
• Short, forked tail
• Streaked undertail coverts
• Distinctive call note often given in flight

Male:
• Purplish-red head, breast, back and rump
• Streaked back
• Brown wings and tail
• Immature male resembles female

Cassin’s Finches are generally found in flocks, except during nesting season, which extends from May to July.

Throughout most of the year members of this species are vegetarians, living largely on buds, berries, and seeds, particularly those of conifers. These finches forage mostly on the ground, but also in trees
