Zebra Finch

We stopped at an artesian bore for morning tea and found a flock of these pretty little finches roosting in a huge thorn covered bush growing through wire surrounding the bore. There was a metal tray under a tap so I filled it with water and hundred of finches descended for a drink Overhead in lazy circles, floated numbers of hawks who from time to time, made a rapid descent on an unsuspecting bird.
