[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Latin name
Fringilla montifringilla

Finches (Fringillidae)

Similar in size and shape to the chaffinch, the male has a black head in summer, and an orange breast with white belly. In flight it shows a long white rump. Gregarious in winter, it may form flocks of many thousands and often joins with chaffinches. Numbers can vary between winters depending on food supplies.

Where to see them
In winter likes beech woodland, farmland fields near woods. Look in flocks of chaffinches and other finches. In autumn look along east coast woodlands and fields. Will visit gardens in winter.

What they eat
Seeds in winter; insects in summer.

Hello Marcin,
What a lovely capture you got here. Amazing soft colours and OOF BG. Maybe you should use more contrast, but it is only my opinion. I liked a lot the bird pose and your composition.
Best wishes,

Cześć Marcinie!

Fajnie sfocona pani jerowa. Hmmm mógłbyś od czasu do czasu wrzucić coś nowego na TN. Przyjemnie było popatrzeć ( nawet jak się nie chciało wpisywać opinii)
