Common linnet is small songbird that belongs to the finch family. It can be found in Europe, West Asia and North-West Africa.
Their preferred habitat is waste ground with a lot of plants and bushes or hedges. They rarely visit gardens even in winter, although they are sometimes seen in rural gardens. Linnets have traditionally been associated with farmland, eating the seeds of weeds that grow in fields left fallow over winter. The pleasant song of the Linnet is a rich musical, warbling that may be heard in flocks.
