I’m sure when this bird feeder was hung in Celia’s Rainbow Garden in Quartzsite, that neither of these two were the intended guests.  Surely, each is taking advantage of a bit of “fast food.”

This image was cropped and then processed in Topaz Adjust using the “Clarity” preset.

Note:  Paul Winer in the previous photo is Celia’s father.  Celia died in 1995 when she was only 8 1/2 years old from a viral infection that hit her heart.  This is her story as told by her mother:  The gardens is one of my favorite places for “photo walking.”

  1. Well spotted, and well documented

  2. Survivors! I just read the story of the garden, what fine acts of love.

  3. Yes, a squirrel in my feeder just ripped the whole cage off both sides. Damn squirrels.

  4. Great capture — they are adorable even though some don’t want them. I just love the sound of the morning doves!

  5. This is the cutest! Love it!

  6. Hope they leave some for the other birds. Nice capture.
