Nice threesome! The Cardinal looks a little annoyed that the other two are there, but he's the one who took off in the last photo.

Very nice. I'm sure the birds sent each other emails "Let's meet for brunch over at F&P where the food is so good."

Hi Folks, glad you enjoyed this post. Now that the weather is getting warmer I usually sit outside for a half hour each afternoon bird-watching. I fill the flat feeders with enough seed to attract the welcome visitors and have to scare away the VERY unwelcome ones.
The first shot was a lucky one because the junco is always flighty and does not stay around too long. Cardinals seem to tolerate other birds like the sparrows, juncos and finches sharing the feeder with them. However, it seems cardinals DO NOT share with other cardinals; when one comes to the feeder (male or female) any other cardinal there takes off.

AC, if your reference is to the old TV show, Three's Company, then the cardinal is definitely Jack!
MONA, wish I could share the cardinal, but I like them too - it's the VA state bird.
