    I like the humor in this one as well as the diagonal created by the three birds back. Lovely colors and clarity as well. And the Loud Mouth is excellent!

Love this rich colors in this photo. Wonderful capture of this group of birds. :O)

Thanks, Katarina and Doc. You were too quick for me, Doc. I uploaded under the title Wise Guy and then decided Loud Mouth might be slightly better--it wasn't displayed or entered in the contest but you were right on it :) Glad you both like the shot.
