Twosomes (and One Threesome)

Pairs of males and females have begun showing up together (the males generally are the more brightly colored an distinctly marked of the two).

Cardinals.

American Goldfinches.

Tufted Titmice

Mourning Doves.

Twosomes are tot always of the same species. In this case, A female cardinal is joined by an American Goldfinch.

Occasionally a twosome becomes a threesome, but only for a few seconds as generally the third wheel is summarily dismissed.
