As per yesterday's post, my bird feeders have been swamped with birds of every kind (well not every kind, obviously) including some colourful additions to the usual fare. This Bullfinch has been a very regular visitor. It's notable what a short powerful bill it's got. The super-bright plumage really stands out in the snowy landscape, but even the black and white tail is eye-catching as it flits about.

I also notice that being a larger bird (amongst small birds) it struggles with this feeder, since when it's perched it finds the hole is around its midriff, so it needs to keep hopping between orientations to get its head in for the seeds. I imagine this is why some feeders have larger hooped perches, though I hadn't appreciated why before now.
