Goldfinch

Goldfinch
Out bird spotting. This is a Goldfinch. We know it as a Steglits in Swedish. This bird might be migrating to the Mediterranean, but some do stay here for the Winter.

It's a little beauty Steffe, such lovely colours. So much more delicate than my old galah..I see they both look the same around the eyes though.

Lovely! I don't see one of these for a long time.

Great picture! I am not an expert but I think this one is called 'cardellino' here.

Nice shot! We have goldfinches in the US too, a similar bird to that one.
