I am not a great bird photographer but I thought this was too cute to pass up. The little purple finch was taking a nap under the protection of a few doves. Denise's hawk had been active so nerves were on edge a bit... :-))

Koren, thank you! We will have to settle for doves on a cedar fence! Partridges and pear trees are not to be found around here ;-))

Protection, one of the basic needs! Great catch!
