A walk on a grey day, today that is, I noticed a flock of birds. Hardly visible. Grey birds on a grey day, not a great combination. From the red head I realized it is Common Redpoll. Our name, translated, would be "grey siskin". These guys hardly sit still and wait for you to take shots. This was the only decent shot I got. But as they say, one good image is enough to save the day.

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:

  8. I'm never sure what bird is named what, but they are interesting. All different designs. This one although mostly grey has some pretty designs...love the touch of red.
