Beautiful colors! I'd love to have these in my yard rather than the common sparrows.

These jaunty little birds are the most common critters in my yard (after the introduced house sparrows). They're frenetic, noisy (and, apparently the most promiscuous species of bird) and always hopping about the place. The babies are too, too cute.
