This is a male chaffinch who has spent the last few days constantly attacking his own reflection in the windows of the house.


He hasn’t yet figured it out that he’s fighting a phantasm. There’s a moral there I think.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
