Spring Grey-capped Greenfinch

A flock of grey-capped greenfinch (Chloris sinica, 金翅雀) has been congregating near Taozi Lake and the river. It is the first new flock that appears to have arrived in the neighbourhood though not doubt others are furtively present. All signs are directed towards an early spring, which means soon there will be many new birds, and other signs of life renewed.
