African Crimson-winged Finch

Rhodopechys alienus Whitaker, 1897

The African Crimson-winged Finch (Rhodopechys alienus), is a pale-colored thickset finch with a heavy, dull yellowish bill. It is found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It was formerly considered a subspecies of the Eurasian Crimson-winged Finch. It has an average length of 13 cm. and a wingspan of ca. 32 cm. It is light brown overall, with a whitish mid-belly, a black cap and a pinkish pattern on the wings and tail. The female is slightly duller than the male. Source: Wikipedia
