We saw a new bird today! It's actually not a great birding day. We went out for a long walk and didn't see anything. Then, when we were heading back in, a very mixed flock of little birds stopped us. I would have liked to have camped out there for a while with binoculars and a bird book, but everyone was tired and cold. The one new bird that I was able to identify for sure was a Hawfinch (Дубонос - детям очень нравится название ). With such a mixed group of birds, the flashes of pink, yellow, white, brown and black as they all flew off were pretty amazing!
