Germany- European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

From the latest German series of semi-postal songbirds on stamps , here is the colorful European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)  with a matching pictorial postmark. Cancelled in " Weltvogelpark Walsrode which  is home to a total of about 4,000 birds with 675 different species. It is the world’s largest bird park and one of the ten species-richest zoos in the world. The Park is not only a paradise for animal and garden lovers but also an attraction for international avian researcher." 
What a wonderful place, I would love to visit it one day to see so many birds in the one place.
