While birding, I'm sure we've all come across a tree or bush with a couple species in it.  Or seen several different species on one lawn.  I think it'd be cool if members osted interesting combo photos.

 

I had one photo somewhere of a puddle in a dirt parking lot..... bird bathing or eating grit included Cedar Waxwing, Barn and Tree Swallows, Goldfinches, Cardinal, Chipping sparrow and a fee Blue jays.

 

 

I took the photo below on May 31st of this year, at the McKinnley Reserve in Stratford, Connecticut (locally known as Great Meadow Marsh).  Its not a very good photo, but nonetheless it was cool to see these paired up.  I only wish I waited a few minutes because a fitz-beewing Willow FC laned just behind them, which would have been in the frame too.

 

 
Song Sparrow and Yellow Warbler

This is the best I can come up with; only 2 different species but I love it - American Avocet and Black-Necked Stilt.

Both those would be lifers for me!

 

Here is another one I found, taken this spring in CT.  2 male Indigo buntings, and a few White-throat and White-crowned sparrows.  This was as close as I could get without them flying into the trees.  And me doing a bit of cropping/light sharpening didn't help with photo quality..... you can tell what they are at least =)

A not-so-great photo taken on a very bright sunny day. Two Great Blue Herons and a Swainson's Hawk were sharing something they were finding in a field in Colusia Co., Calif.

Cactus Wren and White-winged dove.  Not an easy pair to get to sit next to each other.

here is one that i took yesterday.  speckled-belly goose and glossy ibises in background.  this SB goose was injured, and i assume that is why it is still around (south La), thousands of miles from where it should be this time of year.  its mate flew off before i could include it in the photo (~200yds).  its amazing that the mate, while capable of flight, stayed back in wintering territory with this bird while all of their other fellow migrants are far off in the north in breeding range.  a clear sign of the power of pair bonds in some birds.
