Gee I think everything has been covered?? Neat to see both birdie types together.

lol, tom -- that's a whole West Side Story with Pinkies and Dudes. I like all the pinkies and dudes except for the one in the foreground and the pinkie behind the central one's wing. But they would be a bear to clone out with the reflections and all. I think you should use it as an excuse to go back and redirect them. ;-)

I actually think that the bird on the right looking left adds to the story. I agree he (she) is looking warily to the left while the central bird is trying to convince the intruders to leave. Maybe crop the top to try and bring focus to the central area to bring out that story???

Your probably right about all of it. I just don't know how to get them to listen. Maybe they were just to far away to hear me.

birds of not feather, not happy together? just for the sake of conversation about photography and composition (IMO,O!):::: the main dude is obvioius here. the three upper righties do little to enhance his position and the rightie, since he's in focus and shows eye, also detracts from the dude. on the other hand, it (he) shows that there are at least two pinkies wary of the intruder. the dude isn't in the greatest position (photowise) and is facing the wrong direction (photowise), but in this scenario, the rightie saves the day with his balance and his 'help' with the intruders. i did an alternate crop that focuses on the dude, but loses some context. there no implication that it's any better than this -- it's just different...
