Hawfinch – Bulgaria III

From the moment I arrived in Bulgaria, the first thing I noticed where the Hawfinches. You can see them everywhere! Stop at any gas-station, and you can hear them! So I knew this was my chance to get some good time with these beautiful birds, a species that is rather shy in Belgium. I finally spent three days in a hide photographing Hawfinches on a feeding ground, and had great weather, changing from sun to almost white-out snow powder storm. Thank god I’m shooting digital now, this would have cost me a box of film rolls…
