A young female House Finch was chased away from the bird feeder by an older bird. She flew up and took refuge on a branch of the oak tree.

Young female House Finch upset and sad at being chased from the bird feeder.

A male House Finch flew up to join her. She at once complained to him.

The complaints were quite noisy and animated. Lots of fluttering wings.

She: They won't let me eat at those nice sunflower seeds at the feeder.

She: They won’t let me eat at those nice sunflower seeds at the feeder.

He tried to calm her down.

He: Calm down! There is room for all of us at the feeder.

He: Look, there is room for all of us at the feeder.

He: Let's fly down there together!

He: Let’s fly down there together, okay? She: All right then.

Sure enough, they both flew down and got their perches at the bird feeder, and ate there happily together ever after.
