Juv. Hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes) with father--2.jpg

Hawfinch (Kjernebiter / Coccothraustes coccothraustes) fledglings begging their father for food. One of my favourite garden birding moments this summer! :-)

From the colors of the adults I am pretty sure the male has sandy brown head and the female more of an olive color.


Canon 60D, Sigma 150-500mm.


Part of a Juvenile Hawfinch set.

Photos of the parents in diffenent poses/angles can be seen in the Adult Hawfinch set.
