A goldfinch sits in our Judas tree, he is trying to work out what the other birds are doing down there, near the big noisy creatures, picking up for seeds ?!? Taken yesterday, in 2012 Smile 2013 started with rain.

He'll twig, in the end. The chaffinches only feed from the ground, under my perch. Silly sods!!!

Happy New Year to you!

It's a lovely bird capture, but I'm seeing some areas in the sky and around the goldfinch where you've done some cloning/patch repair? and it's quite evident on my screen.
