Just getting excited to get over to France and start birding. This picture on Wiki by Martin Mecnarowski was just way too cute to pass up. Hopefully this is one species I'll have a chance of seeing, the Bearded Reedling. It looks like a Tit but is apparently more closely related to larks.
Here's my book! Organized a bit differently than the standard US field guides so I added some quick tabs to easily get to the group I am looking for. 22 Tabs.... that's not a lot or anything. *eyeroll* There's also my quick eBird list for Brittany aka. Bretagne!
