Weekend Watching

Harper was exhausted from her week of shopping, dining out and her first art festival, so luckily we were home on Saturday to watch all of the activity

when the backyard visitors decided to throw their first party of the season.

It was exciting to watch the rare Baltimore Oriole drop by

and enjoy the snacks.

A few birds were ready to camp out in hopes of a weekend bash,

but there’s always a crabby neighbor that is happy to remind you that the party has gone on long enough.

That did not stop the birds though as they continued to arrive all day,

surprisingly some brought along their children, and

everyone watched for the next arrival.

  2. What a great way to start the day! The expression on that chipmunk’s face is priceless. You have the most adorable feeders in your backyard. And, the fledglings have arrived in my backyard, too. I feel so tender toward those almost but not quite grown-up birds.

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ It was wonderful to have so many birds visiting again and to watch the young bird at his first party. Throughout half of the day he never left the tree and then he finally got the courage to attempt a solo trip to the bird feeder. The first attempts had him sliding down the pole multiple times and hanging from the bottom of the feeder, but he finally made it and was enjoying hanging out with the other birds at the feeder.πŸ™‚

    That Baltimore Oriole is a beauty.
    If I had a neighbour that crabby, I’d think about moving – yikes!

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ It was wonderful to have the Baltimore Oriole drop by, he’s been very selective about attending the parties the last few summers. The chipmunks are usually a favorite neighbor, but after that lengthy glare we won’t be speaking for awhile.😁


  4. So very cool! Wonderful photos.

    That looks like a fun party even if one visitor was crabby.
