Lycabettus Hill, Athens (Prefecture of Attiki)

A small population of breeding Scarlet Rosefinches Carpodacus erythrinus has been found recently in Lycabettus Hill, (Athens). We don't know the origin of these birds, but so far there is a stable population of at least 3 pairs, and last year we saw fledglings and juveniles. In the picture, we see one of the adult males.
