Greenfinch - Carduelis chloris


Here's looking at you ...

This is a female Greenfinch, Carduelis chloris, is not as brightly coloured as the male. The Greenfinch was listed amongst the top 15 UK garden birds in the 2007 RSPB Birdwatch.

This bird was in our garden, picture taken through a window. Do you think she spotted the camera?

Nice capture. I especially like the bird's inquisitive pose. Clearly wondering "why is that human pointing a big cylinder at me?".
I think he read the brand of your lense.

Lovely pose!

Either the camera or her own reflection.

Dear Eleanor (just trying the name for size and feel) yesterday and today's pictures both have a haziness about it. Which I now gather is the result of 'through the window'. You can fix that with a touch of contrasting.
EJWilkins: The haziness you might be able to see, which I can't, is probably caused by the weather, it hasn't been good lately, damp and dull.

Ha! one greenfinch. You wait Ellie smile richard
EJWilkins: I am waiting smile I bet your greenfinches are properly green.
There was a male out there today, he looked wonderful, but too quick for me. They aren't regular visitors to our garden.

Certainly looks that way, Ellie.. perhaps she's showing her betetr side? As usual, a lovely composition which lets her character come through.

Perfect pose for this shot. Nice job framing this picture with the branch, it enhances the overall composition. Nice job capturing this one.
Charming, simply charming
