When the breeding season begins, the female finch builds her nest in bush covers. This nest is made from strips of birch-bark, animal hair, and moss and lays about 2 meters from the ground. She then lays eggs in her nest, incubates them, and feeds the hatchlings until fully fledged.
Currently, the population of the pink-browed rosefinch is quite stable due to its large habitats.
