Upside-down or Downside-up? I went with the latter because this little Java Sparrow has his downside up so that he can get closer to his love. Java Sparrows are actually finches, but we will let that slide. They are rambunctious acrobats dressed in formal attire. In Hawaii, we usually see them in groups. My backyard is a daily playground for numerous Javas playing in my fruit trees and picking seeds out of my many feeders. Today, however, these two found a quiet corner full of colorful Bird Of Paradise. It's a moment of peace for these Javas, let's give them some privacy.
