The Daily Bird #368.

European Goldfinch, from Charly, who notes this is shy bird which stays under cover, photo ops are rare. Those colours! And that last shot, oh. I’m so happy when I get to see such dinosaurs. Click for full size.

    What a beautiful bird. I have heard that in some places, people keep these in aviaries. I can see the appeal…

    The spots on the wings and tail are stylish and the stripes on the head make the bird look like it’s wearing an aviator’s cap. Also the flying picture is all “powered flight”.

    Here, the bird is called​ tikli, an onomatopoeic name.
