Greenfinch

Carduelis chloris

Description:
The greenfinch has a stout body, head and bill and measures 15 centimetres. The male is greenish with a pale bill and yellow panels on its wings and tail. The female is greyish in colour, with faint dark streaks and less yellow than the male.

Habitat:
The greenfinch can be found at the edges of woodland, in wooded pastures and copses, and in bushes, parks and gardens throughout Europe. It does not usually migrate, although some northern populations may winter further south.

Habits:
Greenfinches feed on berries and seeds and sometimes form large flocks with other finches.
