The error in the naming of birds was not solely down to ignorant countrymen, one mid 19th.C. tomb states referring to finches---"some finches are equally known as finches and as linnets" Linnets being brown, grey or rosey ith the grey taking on a green hue depending on the verdure in which they are seen,just as the sea appears blue under a blue sky.
