Default Colorful but NASTY

These guys are so photogenic. But, they always wear out their welcome very quickly. I don't mind one or two, but it always escalates to a FLOCK of mayhem & chaos.

Nice series. Thankfully while we have had the odd visitor or two to our many feeders we have been spared from the usual flocks these guys form. In pairs or solo they are quite beautiful birds as your pics show.

Great pics, especially like the first one.
Thankfully we don't have these birds on this side of the country.

My hat is off to anyone that only has 2 or 3 at a time. I have a love/hate relationship with these birds as they provide beautiful subjects with "interesting" behaviors. But, I hate that they come in droves chasing off almost everything but the hawks.
