Is this a juvenile Greenfinch (the bottom bird)
No interactions present.
Sorry Lynda, I didn't read your text but just looked at the main bird.

No problem, I bet you thought I had a lot to learn :)
Not at all, it was just nice to see a Tree Sparrow, they are rare in my part of the country.
No reason to think that it is a juvenile, from what is visible. A female, born last year or at some point before that.

Is the male much greener then Ophrys? Lynda
Yes, males are a very bright green and show bold yellow in the tail and the wing. Some older females develop a similar depth of colour, though, so sexing is not always easy. The average female is pretty dull, though, with grey and brown tones obvious, rather than bright green.
Juveniles will be around soon and you'll notice their pale, streaked underparts and their streaked back. Juveniles have rather 'fluffy' plumage, too, as the feathers are far less dense than in an adult.
