(Carduelis chloris)

Another pic of the same species made on my backyard... home work again... waiting for better light and weather...

"The European Greenfinch, or just Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. The genus Carduelis might be split up and in this case, the greenfinches would be separated in their old genus Chloris again.
This bird is widespread throughout Europe, north Africa and south west Asia. It is mainly resident, but some northernmost populations migrate further south. The Greenfinch has also been introduced into both Australia and New Zealand. In Malta it is considered a prestigious song bird which has been trapped for many years. It has been domesticated and many Maltese people breed them.Chloris is from the Greek Khloros meaning "green" or "yellowish-green"." (Wiki)

Boa noite Jose,
Great photo of this Greenfinch. Splendid light and colours in awesome sharpness and details. Very attractive pose with eye contact, perfect timing. Very beautiful matching background. A beauty.
I hear them singing in my garden every day now, but they are not close enough for a acceptable photo.
