Normally Hawfinches are very very shy and difficult to approach but 3 years this one in Goryokaku Park let me get close enough to pretty much fill the frame. It didn't mind getting its beak dirty either.

Most years Hawfinch is a common winter visitor but this winter there have hardly been any.

Thanks for clocking this link



  1. It's grey and miserable here in HK, too - please send us a Hawfinch !

  2. Well there are none here at the moment to send John, I've seen just ONE individual this year in town........ONE. Usually they are one of the commonest winter birds............
