The Sky Is The Limit! - Chaffinch - NZ by 


View large for full effect! I have a tray of grain for the chickens and for the past few days this little chap has been helping him self. I have been fortunate to get close enough to get a better capture. Their plumage is amazing, I never realized that they had a little bit of green on their backs.
The male chaffinch is larger than the female. It has a blue-grey head and nape, and pinkish undersides. Pairs form in early spring and, while the female builds the nest, the male advertises its territory with a distinctive song. Each song is slightly different, and regional dialects have been identified from different parts of New Zealand.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
