The Latin names are sometimes tongue twisting and hard to remember. We do not have this pair in our yard too often. They appear only few times a year. They are much larger birds than our gold finches which we have plenty around.

You might be right Amy, I think that I read somewhere that sighting of them in UK is very rare.
