Winter is coming and these delightful little birds can be seen closer to houses again. The loss of foliage is also making them easier to observe. I heard this one before I spotted it at my window. This species can easily be recognized with its blue and yellow plumage, white cheeks and azure blue crown and dark blue line passing through the eye. It remains a resident of Europe in winter.
