I love this colourful bird, even though it is quite common.

Very beautiful bird. I think it is a cousin jay, which occurs in Finnish forests. Also it is veru beautiful, but its vocal voice is not loved.

These colours are simply magnificent! What a stunner of a bird! And you've even caught the catchlight in the eye!

@dobbino: Rob they are so easy to photograph as they are not too worried about the vehicle and seem to pose for ages.
