Within a space of 2 minutes, I captured a male house finch (right) and a female house finch (left) on the same forsythia bush. They were both waiting patiently for their turn at the feeder.

    LOLOLOL@Cindy.....they do look like they've had a little spat! But this is a very special and lovely photo, Don. I love the way they are showing such facial expressions. The little female looks like she's ready to burst out in song! You always get such great captures of the birds. I have a terrible time shooting them. Brilliant photo!!!!

    A GREAT bird guide shot! I envy you being able to feed the birds. I can't do that in my condo situation, as it attracts house sparrows (which are a nesting nuisance).
