New bird in our backyard

Last week we saw a new bird in our backyard: a Goldfinch (‘Putter’ or ‘Distelvink’ in Dutch). It isn’t a rare bird at all, but we never saw one before in our own backyard.

We’ve seen it several times now, and it really likes the bag of nuts. This brings the total number of birds we’ve seen in our yard to twelve: Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Jackdaw, Black Bird, Great Tit, Blue Tit, House Sparrow, Collared Dove, Herring Gull, Magpie, Robin and Starling.

Here’s a video of the Goldfinch in action:
