Cassin’s Finches are found in western parts of North America, inland areas with conifer trees, often in high elevations. They eat mostly seeds, but will also eat flower buds, berries, and vegetable matter, in the summer they may eat insects. The Cassin’s Finches male has a distinct red cap and white around the eye while the female has a distinct white line above the eye and and more vivid pattern on her body. Here is a male getting a drink at my birdbath in northern Arizona.

Yes! We have been having Cassin’s Finches show up at our feeders, too, usually on really cold, snowy days. We aren’t as high as I think you are, though, so it’s always a surprise to see them.
