Purple Crested Turaco - Gonarezhou, 23-26 May    

African Green Pigeon - Gonarezhou, 23-26 May    

and here's our more frequently seen 'common' Pheasant     and Murphy's Law being all encompassing, on this occasion the bird was too close for my 300mm lens and I couldn't move further back.

Greenfinch - probably the best example of my struggle for sharp focus through the double glazing

I had originally posted this as a female Goldfinch, but I am now inclined ( because of the bill and the yellow stripe) to think it is an immature male Greenfinch.

that's a lovely goldfinch. is that found only in the UK? there are so many beautiful colourful birds in other countries. I wish more migratory birds would come through our little island.

goldfinches can be found through most of mainland Europe. Infrequent in Scandinavia though
