European Greenfinch

Chloris chloris (Linnaeus, 1758)

The European Greenfinch, or just Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris), is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. The genus Carduelis might be split up and in this case, the greenfinches would be separated in their old genus Chloris again. Source: Wikipedia
