Eurasian Bullfinch
Pyrrhula pyrrhula
 (L 6.1-6.9")
Rude Strand
Odder, Denmark
Mostly resident of north
Europe but some migrate.
A beautiful bird is the bullfinch
Though a fine song he does not
have to sing
By the poets not one celebrated
As a voice of the Northern Spring
    (Francis Duggan)
Each to his or her own -- for me,
nature’s most exquisite color
breasts the male bullfinch.
    (John Bevis)
