[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The food is small seeds such as thistles (the Latin name is from carduus, thistle) and teasels, but insects are also taken when feeding young. It also regularly visits bird feeders in winter.
In the winter they group together to form flocks of up to about 40 birds, occasionally more.

Hi Szabo . This is a first class close up of this beautiful small bird taking food. Your use of the light has given bright natural colours. All with fine detail in the feathers.I like the natural setting . well taken TFS.

Hello Szabo,
this shot is wonderful, it's a beautiful bird. I always thought they all have red faces. But now I had a look in the Internet and found the same like you are showing here. In German we call it "Graukopfstieglitz".
Thanks for sharing it with us.
Now I know much more as 5 minutes ago, thanks
