    It has taken 12 months of patience for the wild birds at my new location to accept us,anyway I snapped a few off yesterday.They will do for now but will get better as the birds sit a little better.

    Wow what colors!
    The only birds I've seen in the USA that could compare to these are Painted Buntings. Much smaller and they look like they flew into an artist's palet.
    Thanks for sharing!
