Fringilla coelebs


The Chaffinch's large double white wing bars, white tail edges and greenish rump easily identify this 14–16 cm long species. The breeding male is unmistakable, with his reddish underparts and a blue-grey cap. The female is drabber and greener, but still obvious.


Although rather common in the Netherlands I've added the chaffinch to the NWF mission. For me it's an EXTRA-ordinary bird, the singing of the chaffinch is a sign of the beginning of spring.
