The Chaffinch

This lovely bird is one of my favourites. It is a very gentle by nature and gets an awful lot of bullying from the other birds. It is also extremely shy and it took me around 15 minutes to get this photograph (which isn't that great). Everytime I went to click, it flew away!

I love your bird photos. It is interesting to see what birds are in other parts of the world. My Mom would watch every year for the first Robin to appear, then call each of us to announce,"Spring has arrived!"

We have Robins all year round here. I feed the birds regularly and that helps to keep them using the garden. Also as I have said before being an organic gardener there are a lot of juicy bugs around for them!
