Patio Umbrella Olympics

There was a finch fight tonight at the condo. The rosy house finches were being downright ugly and territorial, and making a racket. At the same time, two mourning doves were using the patio umbrella as a trampoline. If you are of a certain age you will remember waterbeds. These mourning doves act like they have been beamed down on a waterbed. Whoa, dude, maintain!

To complete the circus, a lime-green anole is traveling the circumference of the umbrella stopping at each spoke to do a throat display dance. Reminds me of the time I saw Chaka Khan, the Eagles, Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. This line-up makes me giggle, but without the brownies.
