Working on some stories but for the moment I thought I would share something from today, and in future with such special sightings I will title the blog the same...
Today I spotted at least 7 Baltimore Orioles in the backyard! There might even have been 8. August is coming to an end, and I know the Orioles are preparing for fall migration. It makes me sad to see them go but it also gives me something to look forward to next year as Spring arrives and once again so do they.
Other species visiting today include Black-capped Chickadees, Northern Cardinals, Blue Jays, Hairy Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Red-winged Blackbirds, Common Grackles, House Sparrows and American Goldfinches. Oh, and of course, the Rock Dove, more known as Pigeon. Ring-billed Gulls and a Killdeer were seen flying overhead.
I am curious where the Mourning Doves and House Finches are of late? It's been some time since I recall seeing either. Hmmmmmm?
Here are a few pics from the yard this week... thanks for looking, see you again soon!
A male adult Baltimore Oriole. Two for certain have been visiting this summer.
The Black-capped Chickadees have been making more frequent visits as August moves along. The little guys are starting to flock for the coming cold months.
Perhaps not the most exciting blog from me but if not anything else, it lets you all know I am still around.
