Garden Birds - Greenfinch - Chloris chloris

Greenfinches a large finch with a length of around 14 -16cm.
A grey green bird with distinctive yellow feathers edging their wing primary feathers, the female has drabber grey feathers to the male which looks more green in overall colour.



These are very common on and around our feeders, very greedy eaters dropping most of the seed on the ground!
