EUROPEAN GOLDFINCH (Carduelis carduelis)

EUROPEAN GOLDFINCH (Carduelis carduelis) on the young tree in front of my balcony. It was bouncing up and down in the strong gusty wind and I was urprised to find the bird in focus when I downloaded the image.

I’ve just found the other Goldfinch image I wanted to share this morning.  I spoke about sighting this colourful finch for the first time this season in an earlier post.
