Holding on in the cold

Þistilfinka – Goldfinch – Carduelis carduelis

The Goldfinch is holding on and seems full of energy. It is amazing to see how tough this bird is. There has been a blizzard and the frost has been down to – 12°C and the Goldfinch does not even roughen its feathers. We first saw the Goldfinch in the garden January 24 and it has been an almost  daily guest since then.
