madeiran chaffinch is endemic to madeira subspecies of the european chaffinch. preferring rather high altitudes, they are common companions of hikers exploring the island.
this particular one was part of an extremely friendly group staying near the coffee shop on the "levada das 25 fontes" walk. the group of scavengers was living of remains of cakes and sandwiches from the tourists' plates.
