House Finches on the Lookout

I am not a fan of having bird feeders in my images. But I made an exception here because of the gesture shown by this pair of House Finches.

The behavior of the birds was interesting. What you can’t see from these images, but I hope you can surmise, is that a Red Tailed Hawk is flying above. After every seed these two pulled out of the feeder, they would eat that seed while keeping a close eye on the Hawk high above.
