This finch was discovered in the rocky mountains by Dr. Gambel, the 19th-century naturalist who explored and documented much of the American Southwest, who named the bird after the celebrated American naturalist and scientist William Blanding. This bird is distinguished by its handsome and colorful plumage, and resides in Mexico, South America, and the Southwestern United States.
