It looks as if the feathers are dyed instead of a natural dark pink.

I'm glad you submitted it--I agree that the contrast of the black, spiky branches and the colorful birds makes for a really neat effect. That bird looks angry, though (it's probably just the way the black band falls across his eyes), which I find funny--I expect brightly colored birds to always seem happy. Like clowns. But his mood seems to match the harsh and spiky branches, even if his feathers don't. I like it. :D

I don't think it's too busy, the bird's color helps distinguish them from the background.
