Jan 1, Park Sanssoucie

Today's new bird, spotted in Park Sanssoucie, Dickel, the eurasian Bullfinch. A small group startled from the path and went into a bush -- where, owing to the time of year, I could see them well. The male is just gorgeous.

They're very shy. They maintained about 10m distance from me, even when I attempted to very slowly step in their direction. I'm sure I saw the same finches in the same place in the Fall.
