Stenknäck - Coccothraustes coccothraustes - Hawfinch

 A flock of Hawfinch outside my window on the third floor. I have been lucky to see them this winter. This time it was 10 of them. The largest group so far.

 A pair being watched by a third bird, a male.

 Male feeding the female! Can I hope for a nesting pair? Acc to the book this tree would be fine. That would be a treat. :)

  13. Så härliga bilder! Kul att du fick se dem utanför ditt fönster. Skulle ju vara kul om de gjorde bo där.
    Söta matningsbilder! :)
