Snow Finch

By WildLight  
This is a Snow Finch, a bird I hadn't even heard of, which I photographed at a cafe while halfway up a ski resort in France earlier in the year Smile

Please view LARGE for a lot more detail. It's not the best quality though and seems to have lost quite a bit of detail after compression :/

Anyway my big news is that me and my family are officially moving to Singapore! We'll be within 10 min drive from a rainforest and 10 min drive from the sea, 20 min drive from Malaysia, 1.5 hour flight from Borneo and about the same from Thailand Grin It will be a huge change from here though and it's going to be horrible leaving all my friends and family, but at least it's not forever and we should be back after about 2 years Smile

I hope you like this one!

WOW Joe - beautiful shot of an anonymous bird - or at least to me! Tongue (snow finch?)

Anyway, you're moving to Singapore!!! Goodness - I hope you come back Sad And remember, forget location, how many rooms, big house, nice town, the most important thing is INTERNET ACCESS!!! Grin
