Genus FRINGILLA

The genus Fringilla contains the typical Finches such as the Brambling and Chaflinches. In this genus the plumage is much variegated and in the Brambling, the only species found in India, the summer plumage differs considerably from that of the winter, owing to the margins of the feathers wearing away. The bill is long and the culmen straight, except near the tip, where it is slightly deflected.
