If you look very closely, you can see 3 Yellow Finches Feasting!
I have a bird feeder outside my office window. Can't see it from my desk, but when I remember to get up from the computer and stretch, I can see them happily devouring sunflower seeds.
We had to go to a smaller wire feeder after the doves and a persistent squirrel pretty much destroyed the first one and ate us out of bird house and home, but now it's filled with colorful songbirds.
At any one time, we have yellow finches, cardinals, sparrows a painted bunting or two and a woodpecker. All sharing. All getting along. Oh, sure, there is some minor squabbling on occasion, but mostly they just mind their own business.
I feel kinda sorry for the doves, because the new feeder is too small for their wide bodies, but the six or seven who had declared ours the only "five-star feeder" on the block are getting so big, they could be be in serious danger by next Thanksgiving!
Uh-oh. Just spotted Mr. Squirrel, sitting on the rail thinking, "Nuts! Why can't I get to the "good eats" anymore? Sorry fella.
Seeing Woody Woodpecker, Mr and Mrs. Cardinal and The Goldy Finch Family feeding, singing, communicating, waiting their turn, made me think.
If all these different bird species can do it, why can't we?
