She is Back

The female oriole was back again this morning, drinking from the hummingbird feeder.

She is really quite pretty. This is the first year I have ever seen one of these come into the yard.

I wonder if she has a boyfriend. :)

:) These Phainopeplas are hard to get a decent photo of, not only are they fast and like to hide in the shade but they are almost completely black.

Every so often I post close up photo of something I have seen lately. I put that photo at the top of my post, I post the full photo of the last close up at the bottom of the post. Here is this weeks photo… Guess what this is!

The answer to the last post is…

You know you sometimes if you look at things to closely it is really hard to figure out what they are, but then again if you only look at things from a distance, you can miss the important and interesting details. It is also often easy to get swayed by what someone else thinks/guesses.

Bird ID?

•October 19, 2014 • 2 Comments

I saw this bird out the window this morning on the hummingbird feeder. It is a fairly large bird My guess would be from 7-9 inches from beak to tip of tail.

He was quite pretty, reminded me of a goldfinch but WAY too big to be one. Anyone have any idea what this is?
