The oriole is always a welcome sign of spring: they chirp so loudly when they arrive- they make themselves heard! This one comes to say hello in my window every year to let us know he is back. I feed him oranges and grape jelly for a little while and then he leaves only to come back next spring. It was such a good feeling during Covid.
The yellow finch is a real happy little bird that chirps all the time. During these hard times it was a good way to calm down just to listen to them.
Rose breasted grosbeak is a shy bird. He loves the lilac shrub. I enjoy taking pictures of them because they have contrasting colors.
Birds are my passion, I could watch them all day.

I love to watch the birds too, Carmelle. I rarely see the Red breasted Grosbeaks here, sadly. It is always exciting when I do. Thank you for the lovely photos.
Great shots, birds are amazing creatures. I feed several crows every morning and it’s great fun.
Great bird pictures! I too love birds. I particularly like the male American Goldfinch. Too bad most of the birds will have gone South soon.
Love your close up shots. All these birds have visited my feeders in South Lancaster. Love watching them!
Great close-up shots of amazing nature. Thank you for sharing.
Such nice pictures Carmelle, it really is a blessing in the sky.
I am amazed how they know and come back to the same spot, even do that they travel so far.
So glad for you to have this beautiful birds to brighten up your day.:)
