The Male and Female Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs

The Male and female Chaffinch are regular visitors to my garden. This pretty sparrow sized finch is perhaps one of the most common garden birds I see.  All mages were taken at different times on, and from my bedroom balcony. The next one is of a young female .











                

                                Photos of the Female Chaffinch were taken in deep shade


                Female seems to like my wall nut cake, and probably taking some for her chicks.



                                                        Male  in same tree as young bird













So sorry I haven't done any visiting lately. ...same old problem. I will do my best to visit as many of  you as possible tomorrow, when I have rested, and can sit once more at the computer.

Those are all really nice photos Sonjia. I'm sorry to say that the Chaffinch is another species that has suffered dramatic declines in the UK. It is still fairly common but nowhere near the numbers of some thirty or so years ago. I hope you are not seeing similar declines in Iberia.

They are lovely! Thanks for posting your precious ones.

Your lovely pictures bring back memories of when I had chaffinches in my garden. Its now more than two years since I last recorded one. I have come to the conclusion that a local farmer has used a deadly poison on his crops that has killed off all the insects. We now have no insect eating birds in the area. Stay safe Sonjia and keep well.
Mike.

Hello Sonjia. Great to hear from you, and sorry to hear that you are still struggling a little. I am getting ready to transform myself into a Chaffinch to fly over and sample your walnut cake!

Lovely capture on the finches and they all remind me of the sparrows that we badly miss here. And you got nice detail on its features.
Take care
