ABSTRACT
Linnet, a songbird of Europe and Asia. The linnet grows about six inches (15 cm) long. In winter its plumage is brown, except for the white-edged, black tail. In spring the male develops a rosy breast and crown. Linnets feed chiefly on seeds, and they are particularly fond of linseed, from which they get their name.
