This video from the USA says about itself:
Cassin’s Finch (Haemorhous cassinii) Sitting in the Snow – Colorado – April 27, 2016
From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA, 5 September 2019:
Five American Birds Are Named for Him. So Who Was John Cassin?
Carrying on the work of luminaries Alexander Wilson and John James Audubon, John Cassin described nearly 200 bird species and ushered in a new level of rigor in American ornithology. His life was cut short from years poring over specimens preserved with arsenic—but even so he became one of the most admired ornithologists of the 19th century. Ever see a Cassin’s Kingbird, Vireo, Finch, Auklet, or Sparrow? Meet John Cassin.
I did not know this!! I continue to learn…
I had heard his name, but did not know more before getting the Cornell Lab email 🙂
