The Orioles Have Come to Town
Spring has sprung and the birds are out in force. We live in the city and see the usual city players; cardinals, sparrows, wrens, robins. Occasionally a hummingbird will come by my butterfly bush but until a few weeks ago, we never saw an Oriole. He seemed to really enjoy the bird bath, so much so that he brought back a friend. I put out some oranges and grape jelly and they have been visiting a couple of times a day.
The robins are enjoying the bird bath too, but a baby robin evidently fell out of a nearby nest. He had been hiding in my flowers, chirping for the mom to feed him. And he flew the other day!
