I can’t figure out if the orioles are dating or fighting.
New Hampshire Gardener,
I think they were fighting. One I believe was a juvenile Orchard Oriole the other a Baltimore Oriole male. Thank You…
Birds, birds, and more birds in the last three posts (or more). You must be on the migration “road” for birds–and how beautiful they all are. It’s a “who’d’ve thunk!” when it comes to the incredibly beautiful colors; and somehow the “ordinary” colors are also outstanding in their own beauty.
You manage to catch their emotions too: The eagles (youngsters and mom and dad), those other smaller birds “hoping for a place to stay” who may be aiming at acquiring some territory, and those who just ARE in their beauty.
And then there is the “third” blue bird (two “blue birds” and one “Blue Bird”); the “new” one with the iridescent feathers on its wings makes me wonder at the beauty of the color blue in birds.
You have a particularly lovely set of posts this last week or so. MCS
Yes, not far from the Mississippi River, the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers run south to north, good routes for them to follow right through here. I agree the colors are wonderful in the birds this week. The eaglets are eating on their own now. The adults just dropping off fish yesterday morning then leaving. They are in site of the nest though. An Osprey landed near by and in a couple minutes both adult eagles came in to chase it away. Yes, Three wonderful blue colored birds here now. Bluebird, Indigo Bunting and Blue Grosbeak that has the color on wings. Thank You.
