Green-Finch, a species of the Fringilla, L. a charming little bird, which has a strong tinge of green diffused over its whole body; the wings and tail are black, but variegated with yellow.

The green-finch may be easily domesticated, by carrying it into a dark place, putting it upon one finger, and gently touching its breast with a finger of the other hand. Thus, by a few caresses, and gradually admitting day-light, this little creature may be accustomed to eat any bruised seed out of the hand, and will then continue tame.

With respect to the proper food for green-finches, and their treatment when in a diseased state, we refer to the article Gold-finch.
