Greenfinch display

By Mike_Young
Good evening all,
Thanks to everyone for the lovely reactions to my last Bullfinch upload, I'm really pleased you liked it. I've done the usual thanks by Pm to all the award givers.

Tonight staying with birds but with a different activity. Taken this morning, I was delighted to have two pairs of these lovely Greenfinches visit our plot. Even better, this very fit male picked up a Wood pigeon feather and began a courtship display to a nearby female. She remained aloof and carried on feeding.
Hope you enjoy this, thanks for looking

Nice behavioural images Mike. They used to be fairly common in my garden but haven't seen one for at least 12 months.

Cracking set Mike, Greenfinches are in short supply here on the Island after disease killed a lot of them.
