The Finster Log
A Ring Of Finsters

When the Finster's water/bath dish has been out of the Finsterium for awhile — sometimes they're on the ground snacking when I'm ready with the cleaned dish, so I wait for them to finish before I put it back — all the Society finches fly right down to the dish for a drink. At any other time, they're more interested in a fresh dish of soaked seeds, or a leaf of lettuce, but if the water dish has been out for awhile, then they think it's the best thing ever.
All six birds drop down, catching themselves at the last second to land on the edge of the dish. Then they all sit, facing the center of the dish, taking a drink or two. It's a very peaceful moment, and lasts awhile if I'm not there trying to take pictures. Wish I could get that one.
