A well deserved rest - euphonia affinis

By annettep38  
The parents have built a nest in a hanging flower pot on our offside verandah. Nobody uses it apart for hanging up bananas when they are breeding, we want them to be happy.
They are tiny birds, 9-10cms and they have a lovely voice, which is unusual for most tropical birds. Here they are resting in a tree near the house and the evening light came as a bonus. Just in time for my evening arm muscle training Tongue

Many thanks To Richard Niglas for his lovely award and for your kind reception for Caldera harbour.

The yellow feathers are such a contrast to his dark plumage - a wonderfully unusual sight for us Annette.
