Hawfinches (Coccothraustes coccothraustes) fighting. This finch is similar to the evening grosbeak (C. vespertinus) and hooded grosbeak (C. abeillei), in that it is short-tailed and has a stong beak for cracking seeds such as cherry stones. It is found in woodlands throughout Europe and temperate Asia. Photographed in Hungary in spring.
