Bird of the Week

I saw two birds apparently admiring themselves in a window one day this week.

Male chaffinch
I've since learnt that the old lady who lives there has a bird feeder that they visit. Perhaps they were trying to tell her it was empty.

The chaffinch is one of our prettier birds, especially the more colourful male.

Lovely shots, Bob. We often admire the exotic without noticing just how beautuful some of our native species are. The flash of blue in a jays wing is a case in point and whoever could think a starling dull and dab once you see all those colours in the head.
