Featured in “The Birds” August 2010

The European Goldfinch is a small passerine bird in the finch family. It breeds across Europe, North Africa, and western and central Asia, in open, partially wooded lowlands. The bird is 12–13 cm long with a wingspan of 21–25 cm and a weight of 14 to 19 grams.Goldfinches primarily eat small seeds typically from thistles and teasels, but insects are also taken when feeding young. Their nest is built in the outer twigs of tall leafy trees and they lay four to six eggs which hatch in 11–14 days.

This European Goldfinch was photographed on the Greek Island of Lesvos with additional work in Photoshop
