Following up on yesterday’s film, here we see a greenfinch trying to take morcels of seed from a hawfinch (kjernebiter)..I saw this several times today and yesterday…it happens very quickly, but a still picture (below) seems to show the greenfinch’s beak inside the beak of the hawfinch and the greenfinch is pushed away..
Greenfinches / grønnfink are the commonest finches in the winter here . They find both natural food (seed of burdock / borre and rosa spp., both wild and planted) and bird seed I put out. A flock of about 30 was in the garden today.
