[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The average Goldfinch is 12-13 cm long with a wingspan of 21-25 cm and a weight of 14 to 19 grams. The sexes are broadly similar, with a red face, black and white head, warm brown upperparts, white underparts with buff flanks and breast patches, and black and yellow wings. On closer inspection male Goldfinches can often be distinguished by a larger, darker red mask that extends just behind the eye. In females, the red face does not reach the eye. The ivory-coloured bill is long and pointed, and the tail is forked. Goldfinches in breeding condition have a white bill, with a greyish or blackish mark at the tip for the rest of the year. 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.



Erişkinlerde gaga dibinden gözün arka ucuna kadar yayılan kırmızılığı yalnız gaga ile göz arasındaki koyu esmer bir bant keser. Başın gerdan ve gözün gerisindeki yanları beyaz, tepe ve boyun yanları siyahtır. Kanatların ortası boyunca, gövdeye doğru sarı renkli geniş bir bant uzanır. Kanatların beyaz lekeli arka kenarları dışında kalan öbür bölümleri siyah, sırt kahverengi, kuyruksokumu beyazımsıdır. Siyah kuyruk tüylerinin uçlarında da beyaz lekeler bulunur. Gençlerde kanat ve kuyruk tüyleri erişkinlerinki gibidir. Ama öbür bölümler grimsi kahverengi ve koyu çizgilidir. Erişkinlerin uzunluğu 14 cm'yi bulur
Güzel ötüşleri ile tanınan bu kuşlar özellikle devedikeni tohumları ile beslenir. Orman kenarlarında ve ağaçlık yerlerde ürer, üreme mevsimleri dışında küçük sürüler halinde dolaşırlar. Meyve bahçeleri parklarda sık görülen kuşlardandır.

Hi Cahit,

This Godfinch is beautiful with a dreamy expression on his face. The pose is wonderful showing off the excellent colors and fine details of the face, eye and feathers. I love the background, setting and composition.
