I have a bird book and learned it’s an European goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis). I was not happy with the picture from the 20th because it’s blurry. I went back for six days hoping to have a new chance to shoot more photos, better photos. Then on the 26th there he was. One click and he flew away. I still hope to spot him one more time to, hopefully, be able to have the possibility take a better profile photo.
