The dandelion saga continues...

Common Bullfinch - Corcan-coille - Pyrrhula pyrrhula

I never thought Bullfinches would be interested in dandelion seeds, and yet, here is the proof. A male & female pair of Bullfinches settled in a patch of dandelions for about two hours to eat the seeds. They took every seed from a puffball, and ate it after separating & discarding the tail.

I love Bullfinches. They look so smart with their black caps and chunky beaks.


The photo in the previous post is the male Bullfinch. The female was in an awkward position, preventing me getting a clear shot.
