[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.

Woodland edges, farmland hedges and gardens with relatively thick vegetation are favoured for breeding. It nests in trees or bushes, laying 3-8 eggs.

This species can form large flocks outside the breeding season, sometimes mixing with other finches and buntings. They feed largely on seeds, but also take berries and seeds.

The Greenfinch is 15 cm in length with a wing span of 24.5-27.5 cm and is similar in size and shape to a House Sparrow,[2] 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 wheezes and twitters, and the male has a "butterfly" display flight.

Szépek a színek és a fények, nagyon jó az élesség is, remek fotó a zöldike hímről! Felénk hideg és fagyos napok járnak, de legalább látjuk a Napot!

Hello Tibi,
Beautiful capture. Great sharpness on focus on a gentle composition, beautiful colors and lightning.

Salut Tibor,
Frumoasa captura cu o specie nu foarte rara dar pe care eu nu am avut ocazia sa o surprind decat o data.
Imi plac culorile naturale ala penajului si detaliile de pe corpul pasarii.
