What beautiful birds you have, they are so colourful. I love the little hummingbirds they are so fragile looking.
Lovely post Deena

Morning Deena...
Funny, you have Yellow Orioles & we have Orange In Ct. They changed the names from Baltimore to Northern Orioles...Think they better tell them about that so they don't get mixed up!!!(HeHeHe)
Wonder how the folks in Baltimore feel about that too...Have a Happy Memorial Day weekend too...
Always...M

I found a baltimore oriole at my feeder for the first time in several years last week! Maybe they are making a comeback! I hope you are doing well... I always enjoy visiting your blog, and seeing the wonderful wildlife you capture with your lens.

Deena,

Your photos are beautiful. I love the one of the hummingbird. Baltimore Orioles were scarce here for many years but are now making a comeback. Michelle has all kinds of goldfinches at her house. They zip back and forth across her back yard. We saw a lot yesterday at Brandon's birthday. I couldn't get a photo though. They were too quick.

Take care, my friend. Continuing to pray for you.

Blessings,
Mary
