Roselin pourpré -
Carpodacus purpureus -
Purple finch

Il vient aux mangeoires surtout vers la fin de l'hiver !
Le mâle est rouge framboise, avec le dos, les ailes et la queue brunâtre

La femelle est fortement rayée comme les bruants.

Il vient aux mangeoires par groupes et de façon irrégulière

Le roselin pourpré est le cousin de la campagne du roselin familier !
Il habite dans dans les bois mais en sort l'hiver pour profiter de la nourriture des mangeoires

Il fréquente les bois de conifères et mixtes, les clairières et les boisés de ferme;

En hiver il fréquente les parcs, les vergers et les jardins

Aux mangeoires, il commencera par le tournesol puis le chardon, après il mangera de l'alpiste, le millet blanc, mais pour finir ce sera du mais.

Il fréquente surtout les mangeoires placées très haut qui lui offrent du chardon et du tournesol
Le roselin est surtout granivore !
Son alimentation repose sur les graines d'arbres et de mauvaises herbes, de baies et de petits fruits sauvages en automne, de bourgeons et de fleurs d'arbres le printemps

Il mange les graines d'érables négondo, bouleaux, ormes, sapins, mélèzes, frênes, aulnes, pins et épinettes.

Le printemps il affectionne les bourgeons d'érables, de cerisiers, de saules et de peupliers.

L'automne et l'hiver il aime principalement les fruits de sorbiers, cornouillers, pyracanthas et génévriers mais il mange aussi les baies des viornes, pommetiers, sumacs et vignes vierge.

Hi Jean Paul,

We have too many House Finches and an occasional Cassin's Finch here in Tucson but I have never seen a Purple Finch. He looks very much like his not as red cousins. The face and eye are beautiful with excellent details. I love the red feathers on the top of his head. A wonderful pose on the branch and a lovely composition.

Hello Jeanpaul,
Beautiful photo of this Purple Finch. Splendid light and clear colours. Great sharpness, details and composition. Very nice POV, OOF BG and DOF.
Regards,
Peter

Hello Jeanpaul,
I think the picture has a certain dynamism, the pose of the bird provides an impression of movement. Good crop and composition, excellent light, there is a slight blur in the bird's head, but is very light, but does not affect the overall result of the photo. TFS / Regards, Jesús

Good evening Jeanpaul.
It is fascinating to your portfolio. A walk after him is a great adventure and lots of unusual experiences. Photos that you show always seemed to be just a dream for me. This fragile area requires knowledge of photography and ornithological and good equipment (mainly long-focal lenses of good quality). It is good that there are portfolios where you can enjoy good photographs of birds. so, as the announcement of the spring is a wonderful photo. Very good quality, great colors and beautifully maintained depth of field.
Have a nice day,
Jurek

Jean-Paul, bonsoir.

Merci de nouveau pour cette merveilleuse photographie. Belles couleurs, bonne composition, beaucoup de mouvement dans la prise de vue : on se sent près de vous lors de la prise de vue.

Bravo pour cet excellente photographie, qui a du vous demander des trésors de patience.

Félicitations popur vos instructives notes.

A bientôt pour d'autres photographies.

Philippe.

Bonjour Jean-Paul,

La branche cadre bien l'oiseau. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du roselin pourpré. Le floue de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'oiseau. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
