Love Of Nature, Photography, Gardening And Country Valley Living

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


My mom in law said she saw Orioles they have come back already so she put out their feeder and said there were at least 5 of them , well I put up my feeder and WOW! they came right to it this year, so between the in laws feeders and ours all the birds have plenty to eat cause they just live next door. So ya know what I had to do, you guessed it take photos hehe.


                                           Male Baltimore Oriole


                     Yesterday evening we had 5 of these pretty guys hording the feeder !



                                            He seems to be quite the acrobat !



      Photo below is either a  Female Baltimore Oriole  or  Female Orchard Oriole they are soo close in looks.




                                                         Rose breasted Grosbeak !

                            We have a few of these little guys around as well !



                                                  White Crowned Sparrow !


                                           I just love photographing birds !

  A wonderful site all about birds  and has their songs and sounds and is great for identifying .                                      


                         Until next time, hope you all have a wonderful day      daffodilCOUNTRY GAL

I am so jealous we don't have Oriole's and only one time have I seen a Grosbeck. love your photo's.

Wow! These are great. We rarely get Oriole's here and we live near Baltimore, so go figure.

Elaine, we have never had orioles around here, and that's too bad because they are so colorful and yes I have such fun photographing birds as well.

I have tried to get Orioles to come to my feeders, but I never see them. We had a pair in the area about 3 years ago. Maybe someday they will come back. Beautiful bird shots.
