I've been very fortunate to have several pairs of Bullfinch on the feeders outside my lounge window recently. I've counted up to five pairs at once, which I think is the most I've ever seen together. Along with Siskins, Redpolls and lots of the more common species, it really has been a good time to watch out of the window and while away the hours as the rain continues to fall.
I guess it won't be too much longer before they are harder to spot. The leaves will begin to emerge on the trees and Spring will soon be with us. Thankfully, I have some pictures to remind me when this does happen.
A good looking male.
And never far behind him, is the female.
Beautiful captures Adam!:)ReplyDelete
Hello, the bullfinch is a gorgeous bird. I would love to see one some day. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy and have a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
That first shot is brilliant. Have a good weekend.ReplyDelete
Hi Adam. Bullfinches are so localised as to be very rare here on the coast but not too many miles away you have five pairs. Life is just not fair sometimes.ReplyDelete
They are beautiful!ReplyDelete
They are quite sweet!ReplyDelete
such clarity feel like I'm thereReplyDelete
Fortunate indeed....to have this beauty outside my window...well, I'd be in 'heaven'. Excellent photos of this beauty.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this weekend, at I'd Rather B Birdin'. All of us, the birders within us, appreciate you taking time to add your link!!
Beautiful. Your header is really interesting and cool too.ReplyDelete
I've never been able to get over their color...it's like a salmon. Like a child's coloring book picture, these color choices! So different from any other bird! Nice shots!ReplyDelete
terrific picture. those birds look great but they can strip a fruit tree from its buds inside two minutes. Counts agains them in my book :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing the difference between male and female.ReplyDelete
I so enjoy your photography Adam - thank you for sharing such beautiful images of birdlife in your part of the world. How blessed you are to have such a variety right on your doorstep too!ReplyDelete

Nice seed eating bill of those handsome birds..MichelleReplyDelete
Wonderful little bird! That is the good thing about winter and early spring, you do see so much better without the foliage. Of course here in Florida it is pretty much always summer.ReplyDelete
I don't see enough bullfinches so thanks for adding these to #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
