Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

The call of the Goldfinch always take me back to my childhood. I have fond memories of gazing out of my bedroom window at the telephone lines, looking and listening to these birds. They were so different to the Sparrows and Starlings that I could identify back then. So colourful from front to back, and a song that was a lot more tuneful than either the House Sparrow or Starling.

What a pretty little face. We sometimes get Finches in our backyard at certain times of the year but I haven't seen any in a long time.ReplyDelete

Beautiful Goldfinch! I have never seen one, at least the European species, although they do appear in rare spots in the US.ReplyDelete
Interesting goldfinch you have captured. It's so different than the gold finches we have here in the US. So glad you shared this one.ReplyDelete

Such a pretty bird. I have to admit, that reading your posts via Animal Tales has tweaked my interest in birds and I am going to try and find out more about birds in our local area, and teach the kids. Lovely photos, as usual. Thank you for linking up to #animaltalesReplyDelete
