How to identify

The Twite is a small, brown finch closely related to the Linnet, but with a shorter tail and stubbier beak. Its back is tawny, heavily streaked with dark brown and is white below with dark-brown streaks on its lower sides. The rump is pink on males but brown on females. Like the Linnet, it feeds on seeds year-round.
