[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Bullfinch, Common Bullfinch or Eurasian Bullfinch, Pyrrhula pyrrhula, is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae.

This bird breeds across Europe and temperate Asia. It is mainly resident, but many northern birds migrate further south in the winter.

Mixed woodland with some conifers is favoured for breeding, including parkland and gardens. It builds its nest in a bush, (preferably more than 4 metres tall and wide),mature stands of scrub, or tree, laying 4-7 eggs. The food is mainly seeds and buds of fruit trees, which can make it a pest in orchards. If wild bird cover is planted for it,Kale, Quinoa and Millet are preferred, next to tall hedges or woodland.

This species does not form large flocks outside the breeding season, and is usually seen as a pair or family group.

Buna Jozsef
Frumoasa poza si interesanta, mi-ar fi placut totusi subiectul sa fie mai aproape de primul plan.
Numai bine.

e fain subiectul mai ales ca pasarea asta nu prea sta pe pamant insa e cam intunecata imaginea. zapada ar trebui sa fie alba nu gri deschis. cred ca se poate rezolva din Levels in photoshop.
