Fighting for food in the backyard

Despite a winter which reminds more of a bad spring-weather than a real winter the birds in my backyard have been busy searching for food. I have been feeding these beautiful creatures, especially when it is freezing. The favorite food is pears, even though they accept apples if nothing else is on the table. I have been lucky to have many bird species visiting and sometimes the action is great when they fight over the food.

I made a one minute short video which shows behind the scenes setup for the photography. There those who are curious about the method see how this works.

The logs used for the setup as seen in the video are borrowed from a nearby forest and the background is a shower-curtain.
