| Classification Note: Although the appearance and common name of this species might
incline one to associate them closely with Evening and Black-headed Grosbeaks, they
represent a different genus (Pinicola) than the Evening Grosbeak and are in a different
family (Fringillidae) than the Black-headed Grosbeak. They are most closely related to the
Bullfinches, a genus that includes one species (Eurasian Bullfinch) on the most recent
ABA checklist. Some classifiers recognize the Crimson-browed Finch, found in Bhutan,
China, India, Myanmar and Nepal, as belonging to the same genus as the Pine Grosbeak.
