Some aspects of Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs biology, based on an analysis of individuals ringed during 1991 to 2003 in Norfolk, England
Author(s): Stephen J. Browne
Abstract: From 1991 to 2003, 2,954 Chaffinches Fringilla coelebs were caught and ringed, year-round, at Hilborough, Norfolk, England. The age and sex composition of Chaffinches varied between winters, but no systematic pattern was apparent. The age and sex com..[more]..

Structural conservation and variation in the mitochondrial control region of fringilline finches (Fringilla spp.) and the greenfinch (Carduelis chloris
Author(s): H.D. Marshall and A.J. Baker
Abstract: We sequenced the entire control region and portions of flanking genes (tRNAPhe, tRNAGiu, and ND6) in the common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), blue chaffinch (F. teydea), brambling (F. montifringilla), and greenfinch (Carduelis chloris). In these fin..[more]..

Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs foraging patterns,
nestling survival and territory distribution on
lowland farmland

Author(s): Mark J. Whittingham, Richard B. Bradbury, Jeremy D. Wilson
Abstract: Numbers of many bird species which breed on farmland, and are reliant on
cropped land for feeding or nesting, declined between the 1960s and 1990s. In
contrast, Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs numbers increased on farmland over the
same period. This s..[more]..

Time in captivity, individual differences and foraging
behaviour in wild-caught chaffinches

Author(s): S.J. Butler, M.J. Whittingham, J.L. Quinn &W. Cresswell
Abstract: Wild-caught animals are often given a settling in period before experimental trials are initiated.
We used wild-caught chaffinches (Fringilla coelebs) to investigate (a) the effect of
settling in period duration on the likelihood that chaffinches f..[more]..
