This ones for Bob as he asked me for something colourful for Easter.I have been posting Birds on the branch over the last week this one is the Male Chaffinch. This was the most colourful one i had Bob so i hope you like it.

Chaffinch ( Fringilla coelebs ) One of the commonest and most widespread birds in Britain, favouring a wide variety of habitats including gardens, parks and woodland. In winter numbers are boosted by the influx of north european birds. Song comprises a descending trill with a characteristic final flurish. Feeds mainly on Insects during the summer months but seeds in the winter where they often gather in large flocks
