Hope this finds you as well. Warmer here in N Wales. Recognise this bird (I hope, otherwise all the twitchers will shout at me) a Bullfinch. So colourful. In our old house which was more in the country and more bird friendly. We used to see Bullfinches in late summer gorging on Violet seeds that were growing in the gravel surrounding our house.
If I may be so bold as to add to the aphorism, it also confuses those who would harm you.
