Living and birding in Orkney
is the latest opinion the Northern Bullfinch dont toot but Trumpeter Northerns do..??ie there are thought to be 3 species.??
Not species Andy (and sorry for the delay replying, the snow is causing me grief at work) but subspecies / forms. There is considerable disagreement about tooters. Constantine and Mullarny reckon that they are standard nominate jobs but Lee Evans and others think they have a more eastern origin; I'm with Lee on this one, they could feasibly be cassini.
