These birds have been flocking in our area and holding noisy bird conventions in the afternoons. This week they picked our back yard for their meet-up. I could do a little research to find out what type of bird is holding forth here, but they're so camouflaged that it's not as easy as it looks. The females are Oak-tree colored. The males have a little more yellowish color going on, but not much. I suspect they're a type of finch.
Our neighborhood crows joined in as well as you'll see in the film's near-climax. This was for the Vimeo 1-minute project - one minute of film, no editing or camera movement—just a minute of life. Bird life.
