Dive bombing finch

The finches have hit the sunflower seed pretty hard recently.  And they’ve gotten somewhat nasty and competitive about it.  Today they reminded me of the way hummingbirds fight over a feeder, with their acrobatic moves mid-air.  Here’s a blurry shot of one finch dive bombing another.

One thought on “Dive bombing finch

  1. They do tend to squabble at times. No matter how much food I have out there, someone wants to fight over it. I have a nasty Mockingbird right now that thinks all of it is his. Great action shot!
