The russet sparrow (Passer rutilans), also called the cinnamon or cinnamon tree sparrow, is a passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. A chunky little seed-eating bird with a thick bill, it has a body length of 14 to 15 cm (5.5–5.9 in). Its plumage is mainly warm rufous above and grey below. It exhibits sexual dimorphism, with the plumage of both sexes patterned similarly to that of the corresponding sex of house sparrow.
"Shy to the point of being self-effacing, hawfinch is a cracker. Large-headed and strong-billed, with a staring eye, a plumage of pastels offset by striking black and white patches, and – on the male – a ruffle adorning iridescent wings, the hawfinch has it all." 52 Wildlife Weekends www.bradtguides.com
