Birds Don't Hold Grudges...

Yesterday I bought some new songbird food. Apparently, it is a hit because this morning my yard was taken over by tiny little chirping birds. The thing that struck me was that even though there was plenty of food and two full feeders, they seemed to compete and antagonize each other. I watched wings flail and heard angry chirps as I watched in amazement. The strange thing was that they would fight each other and then sit happily next to each other and grab seeds from the feeders. Apparently, birds don't hold a grudge.

Two twin butterflies joined the fray today too. Butterflies always amaze me. These were incredible with bright colors of yellow, black and blue.
