The Eurasian Bullfinch, also known as the Common Bullfinch or simply Bullfinch, is a beautiful little bird of the finch family. Eurasian Bullfinches live across much of Europe and into temperate parts of Asia.
Male Eurasian Bullfinches have grey upperparts and rosy red underparts. Their wings are black with white bars. Females have greyish brown underparts. Eurasian Bullfinches have large heads and heavy finch bills.
