The Red-fronted Serin, also called Fire-fronted Serin, is native to
high altitude regions of the Caucasus and Central Asia,
including the Tien Shan and Indian Himalayas.
They come lower down and flock with other finches in winter.
Alexandra Makhnina took these photos in winter in a park in
Almaty, Kazakhstan. They are far closer than the distant,
blurry photos I took high in the mountains in summer.
The serins were flocking with siskins in the park.
