Could someone name this bird for me that I took Please :o))




I'd say it was a chaffinch.

Sure is. Never seen one with that little yellow feather before.

That's what threw me too.

Apparently finches hybridise. Looks like a possible cross with another species possibly goldfinch or maybe greenfinch.

There is another website for bird enthusiasts called "" You would do far better addressing your question to them. Those guys know all about birds.

Some of us are keen birders too Bathgate. I agree with Buddleja Garden that this looks like a hybrid finch probably a goldfinch with that colouring on the wing.

I've found out it's a Chaffinch :o)

Not with those yellow wing feathers, it is a hybrid LadyE

Have done a bit of googling on this now and the most likely cross is with a siskin - there is a photo which looks very similar. It is very unlikely to be a goldfinch cross as apparently these are very difficult to produce
