common greenfinch - a kind of bright “sparrow”, especially the male, which has olive and green colors in its color. Also, these finches are distinguished by a yellow stripe along the edge of the wings and a powerful beak, which looks a bit like the beak of a grosbeak.


Males chloris chloris larger and more conspicuous, as usual in the bird world. Females are even more similar to sparrows and light gray prevails in their color instead of green. However, the distinctive yellow stripe helps to immediately identify this bird even from afar.
