If anyone is interested in photos, I just returned from a spur of the moment 
and hectic trip to Sandia Crest NM for Rosy-Finches, followed by a quick drive 
and few days in SE AZ. We caught a terrible day weather wise up at Sandia 
Crest, with 40+mph winds, but it really brought the birds in. We had many more 
birds than had been seen the previous days during a warm spell. We did see all 
3 species of Rosy Finch, plus the Hepburnâ??s coastal form of Gray-crowned. 
Most of my pics were shot thru the windows of the Crest House, since it was 
near impossible to even keep your feet in the wind out on the deck. But, I did 
shoot some out there and you can tell the difference. Incredible place, and 
very nice to get good comparisons side-by-side of the various Rosy Finch 

Anyway, if interested, the link is: 
http://www.pbase.com/mctodd/sandia_crest_rosy_finches_2011  As usual the 
â??originalâ?? size will look best to avoid file compression by Pbase. 

I will have another galley of some goodies up soon from the rest of the trip.

Good Birding!!
