I LOVE WATCHING BULLFINCH BIRDS IN THE WINTER

bullfinch snegir bird of eurasia, russia

Bullfinch (Снегирь, snegir)  is a small bird with big round red belly that lives across Europe and Asia.  It is widespread in Russia and one can spot lots of them in Moscow city around winter time. Bullfinch birds travel from Siberia to warmer climate of Moscow during winter.  They eat mostly red Rowan berries that keep hanging in multiples on Rowan trees even in coldest days. It is quite beautiful to see many red birds around red Rowan berries juxtaposed on the winter snow.  Birds look like huge red berries lost in many little ones.  I even think that is why the word red in Russian comes from the word beautiful.
I found this ceramic cup that definitely has a watercolor of bullfinch bird on it by Helen Beard, ceramicist and a watercolor artist from England:
