I headed out early to Col. Sam Smith Park hoping to find an Orchard Oriole. I have had these here in May in the past as you can see from this photo:
No Orchard Oriole but I did have several very colourful birds:
I will identify it at the end of the post.
CAPE MAY WARBLER
The black and white “bicycle helmet” identifies this as a White-crowned Sparrow.
What does he plant who plants a tree?
He plants cool shade and tender rain,
And seed and bud of days to be,
And years that fade and flush again. – Henry Cuyler Bunner (1855–96)
Just superb photos. I need to see a Baltimore oriole this spring.
Such beautiful birds! Such gorgeous pictures!
Was that House Sparrow once again stealing a Tree Swallow box?
What a feast! (and I’m not even talking about the poor fish, which was a feast for the Cormorant, of course!)
Thank you so much, Miles!
Wow! Super belles photos, Miles
