Hawfinch - Coccothraustes Coccothraustes

I took these photos from the window only a few feet away. What a AWESOME bird! A male Hawfinch. He fought off the Starlings, House Sparrows & Chickens for rights to the window bird table. The Hawfinch was first seen yesterday about 2pm. It fed all day until dark and was back this morning. I took tons of photos, Dad deleted most of them but some are sharp. A Kestrel came thought the garden at least 3 times today and then I saw the Hawfinch was being chased by the Kestrel with out stretched claws but the Hawfinch got away. It came back about 2 hours later and ate on & off until dark.

The Kestrel it missed the Hawfinch but got a House Sparrow.

I'm outside now and that is my reflection in the window.
it is not affaid of me now I can walk up close.

Hawfinch have cool feathers on their wings.

We saw Puffins today too!
