I have seen them at least 3 times at the mouth of the Elwah River, Olympic Peninsula, Washington.

Great pic. Yes,GCRF is a regular breeder in the WA Cascades and Olympics, and a relatively common site for we climbers and ski tourists. It's not uncommon to see flocks of 30 or more in the alpine zone, although I've never seen one below subalpine.

Hello Tweets,
Rick Ells posted a photo of a Gray-Crowned Rosy-Finch (Hepburn's
supspecies) taken near the dive park north of the Edmonds ferry dock
this afternoon.

I believe this is the first record for Edmonds. Although GCRF is
presumably a regular breeder in remote, high-altitude parts of the
county, it is not detected every year.
