bullfinch she&he

It is still tropical temperature outside..and also inside the house.
Only morningtime is fine.
So do think the birds..
In the early morning lots of activity around the birdbath.
And...I was happy to watch some lovely species..I rarely see.
Here female bullfinch (goudvink) (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) is showing up.
She is much paler comparing to the oustanding colors of him, if you compare her to her mate.

I saw her once before at the bath...though she and he also are very, very shy birds.
Now she came back several times...probably because it is so warm!

A few days ago I could capture him in his bright carmine, crimson suit. having a drink and a quick refrehment

For me an exiting chance to watch her and him so closely from my hidingplace.
What an outstanding birds!

What wonderful thick beaks these birds have--I wonder what they eat? Lovely photos!
