Thanks yael1 & Jae. There was a lot of cuteness going on in that tree. Didn't see any head bobbing Hema Shah, but lots of preening.

Thank you Hema Shah! I was just admiring your bird collection! Yes, these birds felt more comfortable in close proximity to each other (safety in numbers), they were quite funny all looking from left to right in unison! The sound from the whole flock was deafening though.
