Verdilhão-comum,European Greenfinch, (Carduelis chloris)

Hello TN Friends!

Today I present this greenfinch from my yard... taken this morning.These birds are assiduous of the feeder I have. I setup the shelter yesterday and today I went in the early morning to capture the first light.

"The European greenfinch, or just greenfinch (Chloris chloris) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae.

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)

Have a good Sunday and thanks for viewing ...

Hello Jose,
Your Greenfinch is certainly and attractive bird. Exceptional detail while displaying beautiful hues of olive green and a mixture of black, gray, yellow and brown markings. Love the framing and tad bit of catchlight in it's eye. Great capture!!
