A Finch is a species of small birds. Most finch species live in the New World. The true finches are passerine birds in the family Fringillidae. They are predominantly seed-eating songbirds. Most are native to the northern hemisphere, but one subfamily is endemic to the neotropics, one to the hawiian islands, and one subfamily _monotopics at genus level – is found only in the palaearctic. The scientific name Fringillidae comes from the Latin word fringilla for the chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) – a member of that last subfamily – which is common in Europe.
