Gilded flicker woodpeckers are more sedately concentrating on collecting fallen elderberries while a nearby gray dove does the same. The blue jays must be on the same wavelength as the finches for they are chasing one another between snatching berries from the hawthorn, elderberry and pyracantha. Why limit your diet? It is a veritable feast out there as plants distill their final burst of energy into pushing out as much progeny in the form of seeds as possible. There is more than enough for all and every species is partying together and sharing a good time. Perhaps a lesson for us humans.
