The Bullfinch

The Bullfinch is a quiet bird that spends its time among the branches in woodlands areas. Both the male and the female have black bills and black wings. The male has a blue-grey back and bright rose-pink breast, belly and cheeks. The female has a brown back and pinkish-fawn underparts. Juvenile Bullfinches are like the adult female, but do not have black caps.

Bullfinches feed on insects, berries, seeds (dock, nettle, bramble, ash, birch, honesty), and buds. When they visit the garden they usually take seed from a hanging seed feeder or suet cake.
