It's the Beartooth hwy or 212 that goes out the NE entrance of Yellowstone.  The pass is at almost 11,000 ft.

Hi Scott and Tina,
I lived in Wyoming before moving to Washington State.  I found a good place to find Black Rosy Finches during the summer is the highway (I think it might be called the Beartooth Highway or something like that) that goes northeast from Yellowstone National Park into Montana.  Unfortunately, I'm traveling right now and don't have any maps with me so can't give you a route number.  It is a road that goes up and over a high pass and the Rosy Finches breed around the pass. 

I hope this helps.

Appears that it'll be the family and I down to Yellowstone soon, and just wondering if anyone out there
in Tweeterland has found Black Rosy Finch in Yellowstone NP or environs.  Last time I went a short

distance up Mt. Washburn trail but there were n rosy finches.  Also considering running south to Laramie,
which evidently is near the northern edge of the Brown-capped Rosy's range.
Please advise if you have any info, much appreciated.

I will be making my first trip to Yellowstone this fall and would love to hear about possible birding areas for the Rosy Finches. Could the people who reply to Scott please post to the list?
