Toos are the most curious of birds. This looks like a pair of Bare Eyed toos. I think that the spots that people mentioned during the challenge are due to lightening up the underexposed shadows areas of the image. It's still a wonderful take on the personality of the birds, so it is a good shot.

This is cool. I like the tree giving more subtlety to this happening.

Are those dots actually on the birds? Nice perspective, though I would like to see a tighter crop to make the shot more about the birds and less about the tree. Good job!

I wish, as do possibly you, wish you'd had a longer lens for these birds - I've never seen anything like them

Nice picture - Nice lighting and sharpness. Just can't help thinking they are a little too small in the frame though.

Amazing what can be found in a piece of dead wood!

Beautiful birds, A tighter crop would've shown them off more.

I'm a little confused by the spotting and outlines on the birds and below them in a few places on the tree. It doesn't match the rest of the image in terms of realism which is disconcerting to me.

Those two birds are lost in the tree. If you were closer or crpped closer this would have been a far better image.
