Two Greenfinchs

by


Belonging to the world’s largest group, the Passerine classification, the Greenfinch is widespread in many countries. Common to Europe, Asia and parts of Africa, it has also successfully been introduced to other areas. The Greenfinch is a stockily built finch with a heavy bill and prominent yellow on the sides of the tail and wings. Inhabiting farmland, forest, parks and gardens it feeds on seeds and grain. It is considered a pest in some districts.
