Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

En. Goldfinch, Da. Stillits, Du. Putter, Fi. Tikli, Fr. Chardonneret élégant, Ge. Stieglitz, It. Cardellino, No. Stillits, Sp. Jilguero, Sw. Steglits

Goldfinches are easily identified by their striking colours; red, black and white on the head and black and gold in the wings. Juvenile birds have a streaked brown head but the broad gold stripe through the black wings is already obvious. The wing pattern is so vivid that many birdwatchers don't realise that the Goldfinch has a white rump.
Breeds and winters wherever there are weeds, especially thistles, on wasteground, hedgerows and areas of scrub.

Hello Angelo,
Fine capture of this Goldfinch. I like the lighting and composition. I have heard another Spanish name for it - pajaro pinto (the painted bird).
Thanks for posting,
Regards, Ivan

Cute bird indeed!Nice shot with nice details.

Good work. I would have cropped a bit more.
Nevertheless the fellow is sharp and BG is not distracting.

Bella foto, complimenti: un bel Cardellino con la luce giusta ed esposizione perfetta.

Grazie, ciao, Emanuele
