The Morning walk....

One of Saturdays many bird sightings was a visit from this young Orchard Oriole! I was told he was a first spring male, recognized by the black bib down to his chest. He certainly had a lot to say...so early in the morning. What a nice way to start a morning walk!

You got great pictures of this young bird. That's one of the advantages of a morning walk.

Very nice shots of the bird. The bird looks very colorful and you have also got the view with black bib.

You are seeing some amazing birds lately, Tina! And this is a really neat one - I see them too, on my walks but my pictures are not that good! I really like these!

Orioles are such a treat...the orange and black always puts a smile on my face!I don't see the Orchard but the Baltimore here. And on down I loved all your birds, but the baby chickadee was just ahhh so endearing! I haven't had any nest at my house.

would like to hear your thoughts..
