Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs)

En. Chaffinch, Da. Bogfinke, Du. Vink, Fi. Peippo, Fr. Pinson des arbres, Ge. Buchfink, It. Fringuello, No. Bokfink, Sp. Pinzón común, Sw. Bofink

The male Chaffinch is distinctively coloured, especially in spring when the dull outer edges of his feathers wear away to reveal the striking blue head and pink breast. In all plumages though, Chaffinches are easily told by their unique combination of two broad white wing bars and obvious white outer tail feathers.
Breeds in woodlands, parks, gardens and hedgerows. Winters in gardens and farmland, especially stubble fields.

I have adjusted with PS for levels and sharpness.
