Lil' birds visit 'en masse'

A flock of these lil' birds visited yesterday --- not interested in our sunflower seeds, but eating the bugs from the leaves' undersides. (does everyone have this? aphid colonies on every leaf?)
Anyways, they were fun to watch, check out this one hanging from the leaf's edge.

I count 10 birds in this bottom shot. (granted I don't have the right camera for this).

Hi there, Lisa!

Great action shots of the birds - though I would say that :-)

Funnily enough, not that long ago I had greenfinches at insects on my coral bark maple tree (Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku'). Although in no way were they like the trapeze artists on your tree! They are fun to watch :-)

Looking forward to your post on ornamental grasses and seeing you joining Bloom Day :-)

I'm wondering if your cute little birds might be bushtits? We have them every once in a while and I love to watch their antics. They usually come in a "flock" and often early in the morning, especially in winter. They love to hang on suet feeders and make the cutest noises. I love watching birds and you got some good photos of them.

Hi there, Lisa

Sorry, thought I dropped a comment here – but I couldn’t have :-(

What entertainment we have in our gardens don’t we - as you know I enjoy the birds in my garden too! We’ve got hedgehogs now too :-)

thanks, bev & shirl--

sorry shirl, looks like I neglected to hit the 'publish' button, though I remember seeing your earlier comment! Seems like after all this time, I'm still learning my way around some of the blogger features.
Yes, I'll have to take a look in my bird book & figure out who these little visitors are.

That could be a scene in my garden, except I have chickadees and gold finches. I loved watching them cling on upside down with their little feet!
