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.

Jim
