The Goldfinch or European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) is a small passerine bird in the finch family.
It breeds across Europe, north Africa, and western and central Asia, in open, partially wooded lowlands. It is resident in the milder west of its range, but migrates from colder regions. It will also make local movements, even in the west, to escape bad weather. It is a rare vagrant to eastern North America; one was photographed on a bird feeder in Michigan in 2005.
Feeding on thistles - note thistledown in billIt is 12-13 cm long with a wingspan of 21-25 cm and a weight of 14 to 19 grams. The sexes are alike, with a red face, black and white head, warm brown upperparts, white underparts with buff flanks and breast patches, and black and yellow wings. The ivory-coloured bill is long and pointed, and the tail is forked. Juveniles have a plain head and a greyer back but are unmistakable due to the yellow wing stripe. Birds in central Asia (caniceps group) have a plain grey head behind the red face, lacking the black and white head pattern of European and western Asian birds.
The species is divided into two major groups, each comprising several races. The two groups intergrade at their boundary, so the caniceps group is not recognised as a distinct species despite its readily distinguishable plumage

Hi Yildiz,
this is a very nice shot, with wonderful details and fabulous colors. Your composition is very nice, but you also could rotate the photo to the left and use a portrait format.
