  1. If you weren’t a bird in a former life, you surely will be next time around. Nature and color sure do like birds, and you have the talent to illustrate. Bright bright day Cindy.

  2. We have a Regent Bower Bird that stands out like that, almost glows wherever it goes. Great pictures Cindy, that yellow must be truly a sun symbol to gain so much attention. Thank you for sharing that light in nature πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™

      1. They are beautiful birds Cindy, both varieties. I’ve had both around where I live on the mid north coast of New South Wales but only ever found an old bower. And yes, lots of blue plastic πŸ€£β€οΈπŸ™

          1. The bird life is so exquisite here, there are so many wherever you are. Please feel free to come over and get lost whenever the urge takes you kind lady, I’ll make sure no one can find you for at least a month in each state πŸ€£β€οΈπŸ™

  4. I admire your ability to get good close-ups of these orioles, which come to my garden later in the year and drink from the hummingbird feeder. I’ve tried to photograph them, but I don’t really have the equipment. These are great shots showing the drama of their coloring, which made my heart beat fast, the first time I saw them.

    1. “…their coloring, which made my heart beat fast, the first time I saw them.” Yes! They had, and still have, the same effect on me. They are magical creatures. So happy you enjoyed the photos and lovely to meet you დ

  6. I think you managed to capture a nice moment when he stretches his whole long slender body towards the sky. Almost as if he is singing out his gratitude to the sun as life-giver and for allowing him to reflect its golden rays in his own clothing.

    1. Thank you. I was just blown away by your most recent stunning photo and bird. We are lucky to love the birdie beauties aren’t we. They provide endless hits of beauty დ

    1. Yes. Good observation. This is a very long and very lean bird. It frequently raises it head to scold other orioles which accentuates it’s lean, long profile დ

    1. So great to hear from you and to actually have a post from you in my reader! Praise be. Sounds like you and Jack are enjoying your new place. Good for you & thank you for stopping by დ

  7. How pretty Cindy! I don’t know much about birds, but this one I recognize. In Dutch it is named: Wielewaal. (whee-le-whaal). We have this song that goes – translated: Come let’s go outside/and look for the Wielewaal/when we find this musician/spring has arrived. πŸ™‚

  8. What a lovely blast of color! Thanks for these wonderful photos. I have not seen any kind of oriole here – Baltimore are the most often seen – but it may be that where our feeders are situation is not ideal for them.

  9. Such a pretty bird!
    The sparrows (making a small come back), pigeons, grackles and sea gulls from Toronto send their love to the Holler!

  10. You certainly capture these stunning birds. I think these were the ones I couldn’t get the camera to focus on. And they did not fly away so even more frustrating. So hooded orioles range from the holler to the yucatan. Or migrate? Our golden orioles migrate but are so high up in the tall poplars/ alamos I just listen.

    1. They migrate. At The Holler they stay further south in the winter when the conditions are optimal, and come here to nest in the spring when the conditions are also optimal. They have to live in a place with palm trees since they weave their nests with palm strings. If you want them to come closer, put grape jelly in cut palm fronds on the tree trunk and cut oranges and put in oriole feeders. At first they will be scared of you, but after one season, they basically say, “We expect this of you, and more!” πŸ˜‰ Enjoy! დ
