Thank you for all your C & Cs on my previous picture, and thanks as always to Ali for her generous use award. Today i have a Bullfinch male.

The male is unmistakable with his bright pinkish-red breast and cheeks, grey back, black cap and tail, and bright white rump. The flash of the rump in flight and the sad call note are usually the first signs of bullfinches being present. They feed voraciously on the buds of various trees in spring and were once a 'pest' of fruit crops.
