Q: Can we get a backbutton please?

A: Do you know?

The grosbeak in the back got his feathers ruffled (on top of his head) with the guy in front over a little spat they had...Not sure what started it but only they would know..Nevertheless, I am glad I captured this shot of the two of them together even if they were ignoring each other:) It would be interesting to know what the bird in the back was thinking! He was trying to make himself look bigger to intimidate the bird in front which is why he raised his head feathers. Maybe they were listening to political news over the air waves and got into a big flap:) Just kidding!
