New Species of three-banded rosefinch from Arunachal added to India’s Bird List

The bird is a resident of southern China and a vagrant in Bhutan.

A bird spotted in Arunachal Pradesh at an altitude higher than its recorded perch in adjoining China has become the 1,340th species of the bird family in India.

The three-banded rosefinch is a resident of southern China and a vagrant in Bhutan. A team of scientists from Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) spotted and photographed this rare species of bird in Arunachal Pradesh on February 8.

The new species of bird was found during an intensive survey of finches across the Eastern Himalayas as a part of an ongoing study.

The survey team members spotted the three-banded rosefinch with a flock of white-browed rosefinch, a species commonly seen in this landscape.
