Grey-capped Greenfinch

Grey-capped Greenfinch (Chloris sinica, 金翅雀).

A colourful forest bird, they have a noticeable high pitched call. Except for the duration of summer, I frequently see them around Yuelu Mountain and, more seldom, down by the river. Usually they appear on their own or in small flocks,  but occasionally they mix with tree sparrows.
