The Redpoll (carduelis flammea)
Attractive little bird that could easliy be mistaken for a Sparrow were it not for the bright red crown on his head. I think he is a super bird and all the more so (for me) as it is the only one that I have ever managed to get.
Could have wished for something a wee bit crisper but I think it just works.
I am absolutely floored by the generosity shown to the Goldfinch. Never dreamt it would do so well and I am deeply grateful. Thanks to you all.
