Thanks. The exact nature of that behavior I don't know. I live in a tropical area and I doubt they were cold and looking for warm but who knows. Perhaps they are still young and their thermoregulatory systems are immature needing to huddle together. They always hang out in groups and build communal roosting nests, maybe this is an extension of that.

Wonderful set of excellent images.
I believe this is the normal behavior of juvinial and mature bird. In fact most Finches show the same exact behavior with young ones soon to form wandering flocks and groups to live rest of life together. Have seen these guys at timesand mixing well with red beak finches such as red avadavat (Strawberry finch) doing the same at rest or at nights. They are very social and alway together in small to moderate size group. Used to see them in Hawaii taking care of lawn and eating the seeds when moveing was not done frequently . Where exactly did you spotted them?

Thanks for the kind words Samsen. These were taken in Puerto Rico, in a northern coastal town named Vega Baja where I live, right at my backyard.

Got these at my backyard yesterday. I knew they like to hang around in groups but only had pics of single individuals.

Those are wonderful shots. You certainly have an interesting backyard.

A little action in the back yard this morning. :D

This coopers Hawk knocked down, mid air, a Grackle as it tried to escape. The Hawk stood by the mortally wounded Grackle as if to say "ho hum" It all took me by surprise...my camera was set to "one shot" no servo... so I did the best I could.

Grackle on the ground in front of the Hawk.

My goodness Paul, what an interesting backyard you have.
The grey butcher bird below is the fastest bird to ever visit my backyard. Not once did he miss catching a morsel of meat thrown in the air, no matter which direction I threw it. This one was a juvenile.

Paul looks like you got what you're asking for... What a great series of captures!
How close did the Hawk let you get?

Thanks! I was about 40 feet from the hawk sitting on my patio in a lawn chair and boom! hawk time. :D I must admit...I was not sorry to see the Grackle go.
