Trumpeter Finch - Rhodopechys githaginea
The song and call of this individual bird can be heard through the player below.
The Trumpeter Finch is a small, long-winged bird. It has a large head and short, very thick bill. The summer male has a red bill, grey head and neck, and pale brown upper parts. The breast, rump and tail are pink, the last having dark terminal feathers. Winter males, females and young birds are a very washed-out version of the breeding male.
Drawn-out nasal wheeze or monotone buzz, 'cheeeee' or just 'eeeeeeeee', rising slightly in scale and often followed by short tin-trumpet-like phrases, or intersper-sed with short high-pitched metallic clicks and whistles.
Call is a short or abrupt 'chee' or 'chit', often used as a contact note.
