Greenfinch

What do they look like?

The Greenfinch has a big head and bill and a short tail. Identifiable  by their colouring of green and grey feathers with splashes of bright yellow, the female can be told apart from the male as her colours will be slightly duller.

What do they eat?

These colourful birds enjoy seeds, split grains and some insects. They will also use a peanut feeder and will become a common visitor to your garden.

Where do they nest?

Greenfinches will nest in concealed spots high up in the bushes in a dead grass and small twigs.
