The Oukaimeden ski resort near Marrakesh provides access to snowline scree and boulder slopes - home for the local Crimson-winged Finch (male above; female below). This hardy species is usually found only above 10,000, at and above the snowline in small, remote areas of Morocco, Turkey, and isolated mountain ranges of the same latitudes in west-central Asia. Like many high-altitude species, it has few natural enemies and limited experience with humans, and thus is quite approachable.
