Bruno D'Amicis - Snowfinch

White-winged snowfinches are loud inhabitants of the highest altitudes in the South-European mountains. They are very friendly birds near mountain refuges, the equivalent of sparrows in cities, and often accompaign climbers and hikers on their way. I am always amazed how these little creatures survive in the mountains during the harshest winter days. Here a picture taken in April, when spring is still a mirage above 2000 metres...
