Three pictures of the bird: head, back and in flight This bird was seen in the Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen nature park, Ghent (Belgium) on December 3rd 2016. It is about the size of a common chaffinch.

We couldn't get a very good picture of it, unfortunately. What is the species of this bird?

  • $\begingroup$ From the the tree ("aulne" in French, with very typical fruits), I would have bet on this bird: fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarin_des_aulnes, but is is true that the individual on the left looks much more like /Fringilla coelebs/. $\endgroup$ – bli Dec 6 '16 at 15:21

It's a Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs). From the first picture you see the greyish head and orangish chick. From the second picture the typical whitish/greenish wing bars. From the third pic the bricky belly.
