The Common Chaffinch, usually known simply as the chaffinch, is common in much of Europe, across Asia to Siberia and in northwest Africa. 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.
