Sheep Art

For those few people who aren't following LOTD, here is a cool video Cary featured the other day. Amazing what some talented people can do with money and time.

Baltimore Oriole

A Baltimore Oriole! Isn't he beautiful? I think an Orchard Oriole was at my feeder today too. Not as bright as this guy, but very pretty as well. He and the grosbeak were squabbling over who should get to eat first. My neighbor has a "regular" oriole feeder and two days ago I saw two males going at it over feeding rights. That's what prompted me to put out an orange and see if I couldn't entice one over to my yard. And it worked!

Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Look what came to my feeder today! I've never seen this kind of bird before, but he was easy to identify. His mate was on the feeder earlier (I'm assuming since it was another bird that I've never seen before either), but she couldn't hold a candle to this bright boy!
