Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

A highly coloured finch with a bright red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in loose colonies, they have a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. Increasingly they are visiting birdtables and feeders. In winter many UK goldfinches migrate as far south as Spain. (RSPB)

  20. Quel est l'oiseau le plus beau du monde ? Celui que l'on regarde dans l'instant, celui que l'on approche et qui nous charme par son chant, celui qui sait nous émouvoir lorsque l'on croise son regard. Celui qui s'envole et nous laisse avec nos rêves.
    Tes photos sont magnifiques,Bob.
    Sois en remercié.
    Amicalement.
