There are two different genera of these birds, Carpodacus and Haemorhous. One is mostly found in Europe and Asia, the other is found in North America.
They have spread westward through Europe in recent decades, even breeding in England.
The common rosefinches breeding grounds are located in multiple places such as Sweden, Siberia, Iran, Afghanistan, Japan and more.
Common rosefinches are the most widespread and common rosefinch of Asia and Europe, they span over many different countries around the world!
They build nests low in the trees, and typically produce a brood of 3-4 each breeding season.
Preferred habitats in the summer include thickets or woodlands, and edges of forests with rivers nearby.
In winter months, they prefer gardens, orchards, swamps and dry oak forests.
First-year birds tend to disperse further than adults which explains why colonizing birds are almost always dull-plumaged (young) males.
