Birds / Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris)



The Greenfinch has a pink to ivory coloured stout bill and the male has this yellow/green breast, and yellow on the sides of the tail. The Greenfinch is a familiar garden bird since it was one of the first species to master the knack of feeding from red peanut bags. The male can be quite conspicuously green but in females and juveniles this may not be so obvious. Such birds can still be identified though by the pale yellow panels in the closed primaries and in the sides of the tail. During the winter it is commonly seen in small flocks and is often seen in gardens. 12-15 million breeding pairs across most of Europe except the Scandinavian Highlands.
