Nice shots Norm. Now I know why these birds aren't in my backyard.

They must be 60's birds, big into dayglo

You have to feed them daacon, they'll work for bird feed, but they won't work for nothing. They have to draw the line somewhere.

I see they're not speaking as they eat alone.

Super sharp imagery, well done.

Thanks, they don't even try to sit on the same perch... I guess they don't want to talk to each other with their mouths full. It's probably some kind of finch law humans don't know about.

The little birds are bright, it's pretty easy to pick them out up in the branches of the nearby trees.
