  1. Such a handsome bird – he’s has a lovely suit! His UK family tend to wear green or yellow so it’s wonderful to see his pink outfit. His cousins are working just as hard on thistles for seed – all of them getting fired up for winter no doubt! Great photo 🙂

  3. What a pretty finch! Thanks for sharing! I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to look? Today’s poem is about birdsong. Have a good day, Sam 🙂
