Excellent light and detail!.
No finches here, too dry hence the food is scarce.

My younger tomcat had his hunting fits, he got various hidings for it and I have not seen any dead birds for four months at least. The cats get enough to eat and don't need it

Glad you rescued the bird - I do love cats, but I don't when they hunt birds. Smile Lovely goldfinch btw!
