Someone said here in the forum, that you have to put sunflower seed in the birdhouse - else the little ones are not happy. And that's right. My wife did it today and it wasn't long before 10-12 sparrows, 3 or 4 finches and some chickadees made their appearance. The only place from where they let me shoot photos was from inside the house, through a window, from a very bad angle - and (of course) not too close to the birdhouse. Darnit.

Not hoping for anything I grabbed my camera, switched to Tv-mode and choosed like 1/250 or so, then snapped happily away with my 28-105 zoom lens. When I browsed through the pictures I found that I got some in-flight shots and made this little series. These are heavily cropped and postprocessed and in no way something to write home about in the means of professional bird photography - but I thought they look funny and maybe put a smile on your face.

Have fun watching these sparrows fighting for a good place at the birdhouse!
