Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small, brightly colored bullfinch. The male is orange with black mask, wings, and tail. The female is similar but duller, with gray behind the neck, a pale brown back, and yellow-brown underparts. Found in open conifer forests. Uses its stubby bill to look for berries, buds, and seeds as it forages on the ground. The song is a pleasant jumble of short, mellow whistles and fluting notes. The call includes soft “tew” notes delivered in ones and twos.
