It's a lot of fun to watch how birds interact at the feeders. You never know who's going to be at the top of the pecking order when size isn't that much of a factor.
The body language of the Goldfinch seems to be saying "I'm preparing for trouble".The White-breasted Nuthatch will wait his turn.Sometimes you really want to take a second look at the birds at the feeders. You never know what you might find. See the bird on the right. He's a little more yellow than the drab American Goldfinch. That's because he's a Pine Warbler taking his stance at the sunflower seed feeder.And a tough stance he's taken!You best listen too...my beak it pointer than yours!Now that we know who's boss...I'll let you back in. But aren't I still a cutie!The White-throated Sparrow doesn't have anything to do with them up there, but believe me he's no slouch when it comes to being top dog.Ok, we're all friends again now.Just as long as we know how to play the game.
