While doing an eBird list at my terrace, near Cazalla observatory in Tarifa, a small bird flew into a very close Araucaria and immediately started calling. Both the looks and call seemed unfamiliar and I thought of a Common Rosefinch because of the general structure, heavy streaking on the lower parts and the quite long forked tail. It moved to a nearby bush and was able to take pictures and record the call.
Upon closer inspection of the pictures I was able to confirm the ID. A very exciting backyard bird!
