Genus Urocynchramus


Przevalski's Rosefinch - The Przewalski's Finch is a small bird similar in appearance to the Long-tailed Rosefinch. The tail is long, and the sexes are sexually dimorphic, with the males having bright pink on the throat, breast and belly. Both sexes have brown streaked plumage on the back and wings. The bill is thinner than those of the rosefinches. The morphological feature which most distinguishes the species from the rosefinches is the outer primary; in finches and buntings this feather is vestigial but in the Przewalski's Finch it is two-thirds the length of the next primary.
