White-throated Sparrows and Red-bellied Woodpecker
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. Psalm 133: 1
Birds of different breeds
Might share their food stock
Depends on who likes seeds
And who prefers the suet block,
If they eat peacefully together
With friends of another feather..
But it might work in reverse...
I have seen some converse
To each other and other breeds
Speaking as only a bird could talk
If the one who did like seeds
Instead opted for the suet block!
Poetry By me, AJP
The White-throated Sparrows didn't dare go after a bird as big as the Red-bellied Woodpecker but I have seen them attack the Downy Woodpeckers to chase them off the feeder...The Red-bellied Woodpecker didn't pay them any attention....Nature is very interesting to watch the personalities of the different breeds of birds emerge....Birds are highly intelligent but they need to be diligent as well to survive the extreme weather...
The migratory white-throated sparrows might be extra cranky this year because of after traveling many miles only to face 14 inches of deep snow....here on May 2nd. Who could blame them if they get cantankerous now and then?
