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.
