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.

I've not noticed the hint of blue in their feathers before. How close did you get to them?

About 5-6 metres. Like a lot of birds there is an iridescent quality in some of the feathers, which gives an impression of different colours depending on the angle of the light.
