About the Hawfinch

The Hawfinch is a large-sized finch that lives across much of Europe and temperate Asia. In Europe, most birds are resident (meaning they don't migrate); in Asia many birds summer and winter in different locations.

Hawfinches are recognized by their bulky body, large head, and massive bill. Their plumage is a pleasing mix of orangish-brown, tan, brown, black, and white. Males and females look alike.

The Hawfinch has a large natural range. The population trend is stable and the conservation status is Least Concern as of July 2013.
