A Rose-tinted Spectacle

It finally started snowing in the mountains at 7,500 feet and a mid afternoon call from Scott Rashid with news of a flock of 'rosies' saw us heading to back north to Estes Park. We were soon greeted by a flock of 100+ Brown-capped Rosy Finches and were lucky enough to help Scott trap and ring a number of birds.
