Double-barred Finches sitting on branches

Just when I thought my day couldn't get any better I came across these Double-barred Finches sitting on a bush's branches. Filming them is difficult as they are really small birds and I couldn't see them in the digital camera's view screen. I pointed and guessed where the birds were. After this video I took some photos of them which turned out better than expected.

I had to zoom right in to get these photos. I was about 8 feet from the birds. Nine feet seems to be their "comfort zone". As they were fluttering about so much I had to make a guess at how many of these birds there were in the bush's branches - my guess is there were 8-10 of them.
