Hawfinch - photo by John Robinson The Glamorgan Bird Club (GBC) is keen to hear from anyone lucky enough to have spotted a hawfinch. This bird is clinging on in Glamorgan in very small numbers - probably only a few pairs breed along the Caerphilly Ridge, mainly around Castell Coch. There may be small breeding populations elsewhere in South Wales yet to be discovered but although it's such a stunning bird, it is remarkably shy and difficult to find. More

Hawfinches are very elusive birds, spending much of their time in the tops of trees and disappearing when humans are still some distance away. To find them you have to learn their ticking calls, know where to look and be able to approach without alarming them. As finches go, this is a real monster, almost as big as Redwing, and with a huge bill capable of cracking cherry stones. They are basically orangey-brown in plumage with one massive white wing bar and a white tip to the tail. More

Hawfinch is the biggest bird of the Fringillidae Family. This bird has distinctive heavy silhouette with its “huge” bill and head, and short neck and tail.

This fact is unique in Fringillidae, but maybe they are used in courtship displays. More
