Fuzzy flying shot of Goldfinch ~ Carduelis carduelis

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

A highly coloured finch with a bright red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in loose colonies, they have a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels. Increasingly they are visiting birdtables and feeders. In winter many UK goldfinches migrate as far south as Spain. From :http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/g/goldfinch/index.aspx

♦Rosa♦ ~ It almosts looks like it has been shot out of a canon I think Rosa ~ In reality it has just left the feeder and is a lucky shot, albeit it fuzzy ~ Thanks for the like ~ Best wishes ~ nick
