Bullfinch Male in blackthorn blossoms Bird

The Bullfinch is a large, plump finch which feeds on buds and fruit in woodlands, hedgerows, park lands, gardens and orchards. In other words, it is extremely beautiful and attractive, easy to tame and skilful at mimicry, it was often taken as a cage-bird in times past. Shy and secretive, its melancholy call may be the only indication of its presence in a thicket. Bullfinches usually nest in shrubs, such as hawthorn and blackthorn, making a flimsy nest out of twigs and moss.
