How to identify

The Hawfinch is the UK's largest finch and has a huge bill. Hawfinches are usually shy and difficult to see, but are getting harder to spot as their traditional breeding areas have declined in recent years. Numbers are difficult to determine, however, as Hawfinches are easily overlooked, especially in summer.
