[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
The song is a pleasant silvery twittering. The call is a melodic tickeLIT, and the song is a pleasant tinkling medley of trills and twitters, but always including the trisyllabic call phrase or a teLLIT-teLLIT-teLLIT.

In earlier times, the Goldfinch was kept as a cagebird for its song. Escapes from captivity and deliberate releases have colonised southeastern Australia and New Zealand.
Two on a garden birdfeeder in the UK

Goldfinches are attracted to back gardens in Europe and North America by birdfeeders containing niger (commercially described as nyjer) seed. This seed of an annual from South Asia is small, and high in oils. Special polycarbonate feeders with small oval slits at which the Goldfinches feed are sometimes used.

Hello Szabo,

very nice image from this beautiful shy bird while eating seed with good pov and sharpness.
Fine colors.


Good day Szabo, this shot deserve lots of attention. I love the light here, brilliant moderate colors and good detail. The only thing despite the little noise presence is the use of the sharpening tool. It can be done a bit more gently my friend! Great shot non the less!

Hello Jozsef,
A special color-combination here, the dark grey background is rather unusual for a bird-shot, but I like it. Lovely pose of the beautiful Goldfinch with its little prey in the beak. Fine sharpness and plaisant composition too.
Thanks and kind regards
