New Year's toast, avian style

Bob Levy. that astute Central Park reporter and on-the-spot photographer sends in the photo above with the following comment:

I am thrilled to be able to present to you exclusive and incontrovertible photographic proof that Central Park House Finches have become involved in the manufacture of Sangria this Holiday Season. These entrepreneurial finches obviously recognized the profit potential in this niche business to which they are, surprising as it may seem to most observers, supremely adept. In this image we find a no nonsense and business-like female finch inspecting the orange slice production line. The slices would later be mixed with other fruits and wine to produce the well-known festive holiday beverage consumed all over the world. Happy New Year and bottoms up!

PS Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
