I don't normally photograph birds at feeding stations but with the variety of birds in these three images I couldn't resist capturing the activity. I can't decide which of the three I prefer ~ can you?

It's between V's 2 & 3 for me, Albert, excellent captures, and what a variety. Need more perches, I think Wink Carol

Not easy to decide! V1 has some nicely captured in-flight, but in the end I'm going for V3 because I just love the expression on theface of the little rascal on the right!

I agree with Ann- it's not at all easy to decide - they all have their merits. Three fun images each depicting a moment in time.

It's a bit like an avian version of MacDonalds with folk coming and going all the time: great variety of species here too.
Very well done.

What a wonderful set Albert; I like the composition of V3 best, but prefer V1 for the movement.
Now you have to train them to queue in the British fashion Wink

Ronnie's idea of a MacDonalds is great, but I think it's probably a Fly-In MacDonaldsGrin.
What a wonderful variety of visitors.
I like your composition of V2, with the feeder in focus and offset, with space around for context.
