[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Carduelis carduelis the european goldfinch eating semen on a tree.

from Wiki:
In the winter goldfinches group together to form flocks of up to forty, occasionally more.
The song is a pleasant silvery twittering.
In earlier times, the Goldfinch was kept as a cagebird for its song. Escapes from captivity and deliberate releases have colonised southeastern Australia and New Zealand.
The are always kept in captivity in some contries as Iran, Pakistan, Morocco, etc.!! (from me).

Hello Pierre,
Nice photo of this Goldfinch in splendid clear colours and fine sharpness. A pity that the left side is a bit disturbing.
Thanks for your comment on my last posting.

Hello Mr.Pierre,
Beautiful bird.Well captured in its beautiful pose.Colour and sharpness is really attractive.Like it.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice time,

Very nice pose and not easy to take against the bright blue sky, which highlights the bird's colours even better. The light shows off the head well. As Luciano notes, cropping out the left hand side should enhance the photo.
