I was so taken by their enthusiasm to keep building their nest despite the rain and I like the subtle, almost invisible, detail of the rain, especially the splash at the right hand end of the metal bar.
Virtually straight from the camera bar small changes to brightness, contrast, hue, USM. Image size

Beautiful colors and bokeh, but I think this might have scored better if you had cropped out the bird in the background. IMO, too much for the eyes to look at.

Heh - you're getting that look - like "you got a problem with me?" Nice use of the DOF to separate the birds, but why is one so much skinnier?
