Comments(8) # Siskin Update london e10

Well since the first three Siskins arrived just ten days ago their numbers have continued to grow. There are now at least seven but I think many more, it's just that I've only managed to count seven individuals before they all move round. This is a male again and his picture is featured to show both the simply beauty in his feathers and also the characteristic agility of these finches. This shot isn't taken from above as one might at first believe but from the side, they happily swing around branches in a manner more akin to the tits than any other finches I can think of. I'll try to make sure the next shot is of a female for you. Canon EOS 40D
