The RED BULLFINCH, surrounded by fir branches, is a typical scene of mixed and coniferous forests, and of winter cities of Eurasia. This bird is small, just a little bigger than a sparrow, but on the evergreen branches it is not lost thanks to its bright plumage.
Scarlet breast feathers of the males make them look like important gentlemen in expensive frock coats, and a hat of black plumage adds to their significance. Gray-brown females seem plain in comparison, although they are not deprived of such a dark cap too. Interestingly, the chicks of Bullfinches appear quite nondescript, and only after the first autumn molt their feathers change. By the time the birds are ready to choose a couple, males are dressed in a red suit and a hat.
The Bullfinch courts like a true gentleman: he presents his ladylove pieces of the most delicious meals, thus demonstrating the ability to feed his wife while she is incubating the clutch. There is a complete Matriarchy in families and flocks of these birds, because females are much more active than males and frequently become instigators of quarrels.

Bullfinches are sedentary and prefer to remain in their familiar spots. They live only where there are trees on which to settle and build nests. Their diet consists of plant foods: seeds, berries, buds, young shoots and leaves, even flowers. If that’s not enough, the birds can consume tiny insects. In any case, their favorite treats are rowan berries, and they pick out seeds, leaving the pulp intact.
Due to the fact that in winter the woods don’t provide sufficient sustenance, the birds often move to urban areas at this season. For residents of big cities, the emergence of chubby Bullfinches in yards and parks says that it’s time to get warm clothes and decorate the Christmas tree for the upcoming holidays.
