Verdilhão, European Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris)

Hello TN Friends
Today I present this species with this pic taken in my yard from a shelter... home work...

"The Greenfinch is 15 cm long with a wing span of 24.5 to 27.5 cm. It is similar in size and shape to a House Sparrow,but is mainly green, with yellow in the wings and tail. The female and young birds are duller and have brown tones on the back. The bill is thick and conical. The song contains a lot of trilling twitters interspersed with wheezes, and the male has a "butterfly" display flight." (Wiki)

Exposure Time: 1/512
F-Stop: f/5.6
ISO Speed Ratings: 400
Focal Length: 700/1 mm

Have a great time and thanks for looking.

Bonjour Jose,
Une très belle photo de Carduelis chloris, un oiseau que je vois ici aussi, mais pas facile d'en faire une photo. Belle présentation avec cet arrière-plan neutre et vert qui est parfait pour mettre l'accent sur l'oiseau.
