Barbados Bullfinch

Loxigilla Barbadensis


The Barbados bullfinch is a small bird, 14–15 cm (5.5–6 in). The upperparts are a dark olive-grey, the wings are mostly brown, underparts are greyish, while the under tail-coverts are tawny. Previously considered a subspecies of the Lesser Antillean bullfinch, although it's not actually a bullfinch. It's a very friendly bird.
