Genus PYRRHOSPIZA

The genus Pyrrhospiza approaches the Rose-Finches still more than the preceding genus does, but differs in the male having the abdomen brown, streaked with black. The female is absolutely like the females of the Rose-Finches and has no green whatever in the plumage. In structure Pyrrhospiza resembles Propyrrhula, but in the former the bill is rather more slender and longer.
