Here is another in the series of the Bird portraits. This time the Chaffinch is featured , glancing quickly at the viewer before swiftly flying away. Its pinkish, burnt orange and grey plumage with sharp contrasting feathers give this bird its unique colour palette and charm in our gardens. Usually the chaffinch is heard before they are seen and most often seen looking for food on the ground as oppose to bird feeders.
To give more context and information to this bird, the common chaffinch or simply the chaffinch is a common and widespread small passerine bird in the finch family. The male is brightly coloured with a blue-grey cap and rust-red underparts. The female is more subdued in colouring, but both sexes have two contrasting white wing bars and white sides to the tail.
