Birding Glacier and NW Montana
Thanks Bob.  Gray-Crowned is the correct critter.

Mike Grant asks where to find "Dusky-capped Rosy-finch" in Glacier Park and NW Montana.
 
I'm not sure what Mike means by "Dusky-capped Rosy Finch." The Rosy Finch of Glacier N.P. is Gray-crowned Rosy Finch. They can be found at the pass along the road over the continental divide that connects the eastern and western portions of the park. Ask the Ranger at the interpretive center at the pass.  Brown-capped Rosy Finch is a bird of Colorado and southern Wyoming. Black Rosy-finch evidently ranges into southern Montana. All Rosy-finches should be high in the alpine meadow area at this time of year. They move down hill and spread out in winter.

Mom and I are headed out to Glacier NP and the area NW of Great Falls in a couple weeks.  While many of the birds there will be new to me, Mom in particular is looking for a Dusky-Capped Rosy-Finch.  If anybody knows of any good spots in that part of Montana, please let me know privately at [log in to unmask]

Thanks,
Mike
