feeder war!

After a bit of conversation, Hubby made a feeder from shortening and seeds to hang in the tree. I hoped to see waxeyes but it seems that finches took it over. In my effort to show how much it was being enjoyed, I hid behind the curtains and snapped these shots. I had no idea I was shooting a fight in progress! I'll let you insert your own birdie dialogue :)

The finches are a feisty lot. They are trying to gain access to this resource, but they are beautiful. Great photos.

I noticed quite a commotion at our feeder the other day...I actually wondered if it was the parents squabbling with their now adult children!

Oh my gosh they meant business for sure. Super series here.

Looks like a right old fight took place there.

Looks like finches are as bossy in New Zealand as they are in Canada. :)) Clever feeder!

I guess the finches are not good at sharing. They are really enjoying your feeder. I like the shot of the bird with its wings spread, cool!
