all the birds in the sky VI

Time for yet another bird. Today it’s a chaffinch also known as common chaffinch, or Buchfink. I struggled a bit with the colours on this one, the reddish tones on the belly and cheeks turned out to be quite challenging. Also did you notice that it’s got green on it’s lower back? Did not know that.

So there’s this new felted bird I’ve got for you. It’s called an ‚Eurasian Redstart‘. Don’t mistake it for a ‚black redstart‘, which is – unsurprisingly – a lot darker and has only a red tail. In German we say ‚Gartenrotschwanz‘ and the other, darker one is a ‚Hausrotschwanz‘ (because it fell down the chimney or something – I don’t know…)
