Spring migrants

New birds are showing up at our feeders daily and it's so fun to watch!  We took a few photos through our kitchen windows to share so forgive the quality please.  Below you see a Baltimore oriole on our suet feeder.  A younger oriole is also hanging about, but didn't show up for the photo shoot.

A male rose-breasted grosbeak is dining happily on sunflower & safflower seeds.

If you look in the middle of the photo below on the feeder opposite the cardinal you will see the female rose-breasted grosbeak.

Two male yellow warblers were hunting bugs in our lilac bush a few days ago and those are just the easy ones we've noticed!  Time to get outdoors and pay attention. 


  1. That's great! I bet you get lots of wonderful birds as the seasons change!

  2. I love watching all the bird families that have been visiting our yard lately! Spring is delightful:)
