Cooperative Finchdom

While the greenfinch waits patiently for its turn at the feeder, the goldfinch eats greedily and scatters seeds down onto the grass below where the chaffinch is waiting. 

Yes, I know: I should be encouraging or chiding Bishops and priests into defending the Pope, and encouraging the Catholic Union to lead the charge against Hitchens and Dawkins, but, on the whole, I feel that contemplation of the finch family offers a better prospect of ending the day without feeling that I've been banging my head against a brick wall.
