About This Image

bushtit baby birds chilling out on the water bubbler fountain while parent watches, -- Love the white/light eyes. These little fellas visit the fountain bubbler around the same time each afternoon, and love the water and try to crowd each other out, to get at the bubbler :)
captured from open front window

Just found this photo. Very well done. Perfect composition. The details of the little birds are clearly seen.

thankyou again, Ikka. I love these tiny birds. In winter they fly in flocks, I guess they huddle together for warmth when resting during wintertime. In spring, they pair off to build nests and raise the young.

thanks again, Don. I think it's the light coloured eyes that add to the image :) They are the cutest little birds, - do you see them in your area? When we had the previous "water arrangement" out front, before hubby replaced it, - we used to see "wall to wall" bushtits bathing sometimes :) But in this bubbler area, not as many can get onto the small part, but I did see 6 or 7 birds that day, all trying to get to the water bubbler, flying down ontop of the birds already there and trying to push their way in to the water. I got more images, will have to submit them.

I'm with Anne and Golda, great image Alandra! The look on the middle bird is priceless, like he is saying "Hey, I was here first. Don't crowd me!" Beautiful capture, very cute. Don

thanks again, Anne, was hoping others would also think it a sweet image, so am happy you did :)

What a darling picture. One I have missed since leaving my home for Apartment. Yes, the parent was keeping a good eye on them. *g* And what little darlings they are. Great picture. Anne

that's really nice of you, Golda, am happy you like it, and thankyou for the nice comments. I did think the expressions on the tiny birds is cute, and the adult bird seems to be guarding them.
