I love these colorful birds, but they sure can be tough to photograph. Hundreds would descend on the tree at a time, and then they would feed in constant motion. It was hard to pick a single bird out to photograph. Then, all it takes is a crow to fly by, and the hundreds leave in a giant mass. I almost got hit by birds a couple of times!
I usually use flash for some fill light, but here, because it was so dark, I made it the main light source.
