    I really don’t know if it is the British Garden Stonechat but you get a definite “E” for effort. It looks very similiar. Way to go Jim.

    Some sort of chickadee? My friend says it’s photoshopped. It’s orange air-brushed chickadee.

    It’s a European Bullfinch

      We have a winner – No doubt about it. Polly knows her birds! Google says, “The strikingly plumaged male Bullfinch is a beautiful bird with a sweet song. Found in hedgerows and orchards of the European countryside, the Bullfinch has a slighter beak than the Hawnnch and is adapted to cracking seeds with thinner coats. It also eats buds, berries and insects.”
