The most colourful birds at the feeding station are the bullfinches. I have seen a dozen there at once. They really appreciate the seeds provided.

They eat so much that their beaks are almost always moving as they manoeuvre a seed to remove its husk. The cocks are beautiful of course.

But the subtle colours of the hens are also very pleasing, particularly if you are lucky enough to get a close view.

Alan, I have always thought these Bullfinches are among the prettiest in terms of coloration. You're very fortunate to have a nice place to get these shots. The way you took them, it looks so peaceful and natural.

All are nice, but I sure do love #4, it looks like a greeting card! I notice that fellow has jewelry.
