The American goldfinch (Spinus tristis) is a small North American bird in the finch family. It is migratory, ranging from mid-Alberta to North Carolina during the breeding season, and from just south of the Canada–United States border to Mexico during the winter.
The Apapane is a small Hawaiian Honeycreeper native to the Hawaiian Islands. It breeds in wet Hawaiian forests above 3,000 feet in elevation on most of the Hawaiian Islands. This species feeds on nectar from the ohia and other tree species, and gleans invertebrates from foliage in the tops of trees.
They are considered common in their natural range from reading Russell Kingston’s excellent book “Keeping and Breeding Finches and Seed Eaters”, he states, that unlike the Black headed Red Siskin, the Yellow Siskin is largely left alone for the pet market and hasn’t suffered the pressure of being targeted by trappers.
European goldfinch. The European goldfinch or goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis), is a small passerine bird in the finch family that is native to Europe, North Africa and western Asia. It has been introduced to other areas including Australia, New Zealand and Uruguay. The goldfinch has a red face and a black-and-white head.
The Kona Grosbeak (Chloridops kona) belongs to the subfamily of Drepanidinae and is mainly found in the Myoporum forests. These types of finches reside at an elevation of about 1,400 – 1,500 m (4,600 – 4,900 feet) in Hawaii Island. The population is considerably reducing during the recent times but the cause is still unknown.
The common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), usually known simply as 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 much duller in colouring, but both sexes have two contrasting white wing bars and white sides to the tail. The male bird has a strong voice and sings from exposed perches to attract a mate.
The European goldfinch or goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis), is a small passerine bird in the finch family that is native to Europe, North Africa and western Asia. It has been introduced to other areas including Australia, New Zealand and Uruguay.
The European greenfinch, or just greenfinch (Chloris chloris), is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. This bird is widespread throughout Europe, north Africa and south west Asia. It is mainly resident, but some northernmost populations migrate further south.
The hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes) is a passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. Its closest living relatives are the evening grosbeak (Hesperiphona vespertinus) from North America and the hooded grosbeak (Hesperiphona abeillei) from Central America especially Mexico.
The Po’ouli is an endangered bird found on the north-eastern slopes of Haleakala on the island of Maui. Po’ouli means “dark head” and is otherwise known as the Black Faced Honeycreeper. The discovery of the Po’ouli was in 1973 by three students from the University of Hawaii.
The Purple Finch is the bird that Roger Tory Peterson famously described as a “sparrow dipped in raspberry juice.” For many of us, they’re irregular winter visitors to our feeders, although these chunky, big-beaked finches do breed in northern North America and the West Coast.
Eurasian bullfinch. The bullfinch, common bullfinch or Eurasian bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. In Anglophone Europe it is known simply as bullfinch, as it is the original bird to bear the name bullfinch.
Breeding Red Siskin Finches breeding season starts in september this is a time to give them a more varied diet to kick the breeding instincts into gear. Red siskins will breed in canary nest 40 mm across with the hen using a variety of nesting material such as swamp grass, coconut fibre, cotton wool, feathers and soft bark.
Redpoll is a see also of finch. As nouns the difference between redpoll and finch is that redpoll is any of various finches in the genus carduelis , which have characteristic red markings on their heads while finch is any bird of the family fringillidae , seed-eating passerine birds, native chiefly to the northern hemisphere and usually having a conical beak.
The true finches are small to medium-sized passerine birds in the family Fringillidae. Finches have stout conical bills adapted for eating seeds and often have colourful plumage. They occupy a great range of habitats where they are usually resident and do not migrate. They have a worldwide distribution except for Australia and the polar regions. The family includes species known as siskins, canaries, redpolls, serins, grosbeaks and euphonias.
The Yellow-faced Siskin was initially described as a Californian species, since the first male type specimen was a captive bird in that state. But this bright yellow finch, which closely resembles the more familiar American Goldfinch, is actually native to South America.
