A beautiful day! Sunny breaks with some warmth.
Lots of activity around the bird feeders today. I was enjoying a tea on the veranda when I saw a very large bird coming straight at me. I ducked even though he was flying over the house! He was too fast for me to get his picture, but he came around again and this time I was prepared.
A few hours later a similar experience with a red-winged black bird. I with I had captured the moment with my camera. He was coming straight towards me. All I could notice was how cool the red spots on his wings looked.
We had so many birds all day at the feeder and flying around the backyard. So much singsong and calling. It was beautiful!
The red breasted grosbeak made an appearance again…this time I got his picture!…as did a Baltimore oriole. Haven’t seen one since 2017 so it was a real treat!
Pretty interesting cloud patterns too
And the painting of the day:
