Another Little Visitor - A Bullfinch


Another Little Visitor      - A Bullfinch

I watched this lovely little bird waiting for him to come down, which he eventually did but flew back up in the tree immediately I got out my camera, so had to to be content with this picture.

So sorry Yorkshire, Sixpence and Stripes its a Bullfinch think this is the male as the female is a paler pinky colour, they are very colourful and attractive birds but watch out for your berries and blosson in spring, they sometimes visit in a flock and can strip a tree in a few, but minutes, but still love to see them , have put their name up now lol

Just beautiful Carole....we don't see Bullfinches here, so this is a real treat, such a fabulous colour.

I already knew it was a Bullfinch Carole so you no need to be sorry to me, :o))) as I had one visit my garden a few years ago, not seen one since which is a shame, if my berries go missing I ll know now who took them lol thanks

He is beautiful Carole,I have never had one here.I think your menu must be more varied than mine..do you know what he likes to eat? I know you put out lots more different things than me..sometimes they just don't seem interested in mine..Sob.!..They must be fed up of nuts,seed and fatballs..

Lovely bird, like Sandra i wish i got these in my garden.

Thanks all, it is a very beautiful bird, we usually have visits in Spring and Autumn so they are obviously feeling the effects of the severe winter weather, they normally eat flower buds , berries and seeds.

How lovely, PP, I can imagine how thrilled you must be. I saw one a couple of years ago, when I first joined GoY but it was a very fleeting visit and has never been repeated :(

Thanks Gee, It was good to see them , but they havent been around for a few days as the weather as got a little warmer and the snow as gone!

I my mind I always seem to read your GoY name as PansySpotter! So when I saw this picture of yours of the Bullfinch I wondered if you were now BirdSpotter! :-D LOL!

Lovely photo, I don't think I've ever seen one that wasn't a picture before! :-((

Lovely photo, what a beautful bullfinch, such striking colours.

Love the bullfinches. WHen we lived down the road we had them visit but only about this time of year until February March time. They are so colourful and light up these dull days.

Thanks Grandmage and Lindak, it is lovely to see them and their colour certainly does light up a gloomy winter's day'-0)
