Europa CEPT 2019 National Birds on cover from Poland

As a part of Europa CEPT 2019 National Birds, Polish post issued one stamp with common chaffinch, issued on 24.4.2019. The common chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), is a common and widespread small passerine bird in the finch family. The male is brightly colored with a blue-grey cap and rust-red underparts. The female is much duller in coloring, but both sexes have two contrasting white wing bars and white sides to the tail. The male bird has a strong voice and sings from exposed perches to attract a mate. The chaffinch breeds in much of Europe, across Asia to Siberia and in northwest Africa.

Thank you, Olga!
