What is a "Gimpel"??
Gimpel is the German name for the
finch Pyrrhula pyrrhula, commonly called Dompfaff. Both
males and females have a black head, beak, wings and tail; a grey back and
a white rump. The male has a rose-red lower surface, however, the female
is inconspicuously brown.
The Gimpel lives in the forests of Europe
and builds its nest in a tree or bush. It
eats the seeds of fleshy fruits and herbs, buds, and shoots and will leave
the forest only when it cannot find food. Although
its singing is generally monotone, in captivity, the Gimpel has a masterful
ability to learn and imitate human music.
