White-winged Snowfinch

The White-winged Snowfinch (Schneesperling – Montifringilla nivalis) is my lif bird #508. I saw it in Italy on top of the skiing mountain “Kronplatz” (South Tiroly) – what a surprise. I’m glad I had my camera with me 😉



A bad picture but a nice look of the wing pattern in flight:20160218-12

The usual Alpine Choughs (Alpendohle – Pyrrhocorax graculus) were around too.


At one point in the afternoon there were about 50 of them circling in the sky.20160218-14

And also the mountain view was very nice!20160218-15
