Female Chaffinch

By dven    
The Chaffinch is our commonest finch and has striking double white wing bars. The wing bars are formed by white patches on the wing coverts, and primary and secondary wing feathers. Its summer plumage is brighter that its winter plumage.


The female has an olive-brown back, and grey-brown underparts becoming almost white towards the rump, which is greenish.
