The American rosefinches are birds in the finch family Fringillidae. The Haemorhous species are closely related to the Carpodacus rosefinches. As the name implies, various shades of red are the characteristic plumage colors of this group.
American rosefinches are found throughout the North American continent.
There have been a number of rosefinch radiations. One of the first to split off were the ancestors of the North American species and diverged in the Middle Miocene (about 14–12 mya) from the proto-rosefinches.
