The bullfinch has a bright red breast and gray back set off by a coal–black head. However, only males have red breasts, the female’s breasts are brown. They have an excellent ability to imitate different sounds. Some of these birds can memorize and whistle several very complex melodies. All you need is patience to train a bird. It is quite easy to tame bullfinch.
Despite the fact that most bullfinches live in Eurasia, the largest of them, white-cheeked bullfinches, live in the hot Philippines.
In captivity, these birds live less than in nature. The weight of an adult bullfinch is about thirty grams.
Bullfinches are monogamous. During the breeding season, males coax females by offering food. Males never take part in the construction of a nest. Nestlings of bullfinches gain their independence in the third week of life.
