Baltimore Orioles are a late spring arrival. Seeing this one was a good stamp on spring finally being here. Photo shot through the kitchen window which has a screen, therefore the slightly out of focus image.
It is at a hummingbird feeder; I have learned over the past several years that orioles prefer them to the oriole feeders I have trialed; the hummingbird feeders are less tippy and unsteady.
This sprightly little fellow (or lady!) watched me from the safety of the Manitoba Maple tree in the back yard.
A neighbours’ free-roaming cat has the temerity to trespass in our back yard. While we like cats, we like them as inside-only pets. The dogs very much do not like cats. We, and the dogs, pop out at random times to keep kitty guessing, to keep the songbirds, and this welcome guest, as safe as possible.
