Birds of Wassenaar

An occasional series on the birds we see here. This little guy is a vink in dutch or chaffinch in english. Evidently he's a very common bird, but I have to say that we never see them around our house. In fact, we rarely actually see them in the trees & meadows where we hear them all the time.

I have never seen this finch before and suppose it must be native only to Europe. We have several finch varieties but not this one. I also looked it up on the Internet and was able to see some other photos and all were interesting.

Nice photo. Is it difficult to photograph birds? Don't they fly away before you click?
