Birds and a Birthday

The Baltimore Orioles are still here!  There are eight maybe ten that are hanging in the trees.  Yesterday we had a new to us bird.Orchard Oriole

Orchard Oriole…we are just on the edge of his range.  He is much darker than the Baltimore Orioles.

Then we had this unknown to me bird.

Immature Orchare Oriole

It has a black throat and a beak like an Immature Orchard Oriole…but I am uncertain.

 

Grandson Noah is fifteen years old today.

He loves his longer hair and so do I.  Happy Birthday!

I think he will get his Driver’s Permit soon…part of growing up and making Grandma feel older.

  3. Happy Birthday, Noah! I haven't seen any Baltimore Orioles so far this year. People have been putting out orange halves for them but no sightings so far in my neighborhood.

  8. New birds and variants of old birds make identification a challenge and sends us to the bird books.

  14. Happy Birthday to Noah! Love your little birds. Today is the last day of school for the kids and there is a forest fire near enough to greatly effect the air quality...no outdoor activities. We are in for a crazy day today!

  17. It is interesting that the long hair has come back as a style for boys. There are a few guys in our school that like to wear it long and some who are doing the Beiber look. Handsome young man, that he is.

  18. I had some orioles in my pasture at one time. They have big nests that hang down don't they? No, it wasn't a wasp's nest....I don't think it was anyway. In Iowa we had lots of those yellow birds but I can't remember the name of them. I'm a novice.
    Your grandson is so handsome and the long hair reminds me of our generation....is it coming back in style?
