    Finches just stare at the feeder

    Hi! I recently posted another thread about my feeder attracting single species, the great tit (Parus major). Several days ago, I installed two new feeders for finch species, one has Nyjer seeds, the other has sunflower hearts. However, today I noticed that finch species (mostly chaffinch) just...

    House Finch.jpg

    Shot in morning shade. Looks to be an immature male. The most interesting thing for me is that when I started bird watching I knew these by the scientific name "Carpodacus Mexicanus". I have referred to them as such since then without a second thought. But apparently 2012 came and went and I...

    Connecticut residents, including our feathered friends, look forward to the annual sunflower blooms. As folks from all over descend on the fields for selfies, birds like this American goldfinch come to feast on the fall seeds. This is Auger's Field in North Branford, Connecticut. Of their many...

    Fledgling house finch

    Fledgling season in the yard: house finches arriving at the feeders for the first time without their parents. They're learning very quickly to take a position under the suet feeder, unlike their parents who prefer thistle.

    Unexpected Bullfinches

    Bullfinches are not so common wintering visitors of my town, usually they are seen in January but last year I suddenly met them at the second day of November at the park near my home. They stayed there until March of this year before departing to their nesting grounds.

    Chaffinch or Brambling in Belgium

    Finch observed in eastern Belgium. Photos taken 8th January 2021. I am not 100% sure photo a shows the same bird as b and c do. I attached brightened versions of each photo as well. Thanks for any help! Tom

    [Australian] Red-browed Finch

    I noticed this Red-browed Finch feeding on seeds next to a track in the Carnarvon National Park in Queensland, Australia. The Carnarvon National Park with its Carnarvon Gorge is a beautiful national park which I would recommend for birding. There were also many other smaller birds.

    Hi from Manchester UK!

    Hi everybody! I hope you're all enjoying spring as much as I am. I've been getting acquainted with the resident great/blue tits and finches in my garden. I also had a family of ring necked parakeets visit the pear tree last winter. Although they're quite common in the south (London) all year...

    Question regarding finch nest and eggs

    Apologies if I have not posted this in the right area. I just created this account and not quite sure where to post. Nine days ago I went to take our Christmas wreath off the front door (I know... April and the wreath is still up). To my surprise there was a little birds next there. I put the...

    More passerines in Germany--Taunus

    Both observed in April 2021 in the Taunus region. 1: could be a Linnet? 2: Willow or Marsh Tit. I can only distinguish them by vocalizations (and this one was silent). I'm curious whether you guys can say anything based on this photo alone.

    Passerines in Germany--Taunus

    I need some ID/confirmation for the following birds, observed in March/April 2021 in the Taunus region. Bird 1a-c: European Serin or a similar finch? Bird 2a-c: I'm drawing a blank here. Bird 3: Bad photo, I know. But is that a Yellowhammer? Many thanks!
