Looking out the window, I viewed what I think was an altamira oriole.
Finally, a visitor to my hummingbird feeder. Every species welcome.

      I think it is an altamira oriole. I looked it up in the bird book and it looked exactly like three photos of it. They were a more orangy color, as this one was, and the mask and wing patterns were the same.

    This morning, I woke up and both my feeders were empty. I don’t mean the usual “very low, need to refill.” I mean they were empty to the very final seed. I guess they finally found my new feeder. My son wants me to get a hummingbird feeder because they are such beautiful birds. I just don’t know where I’d put it. But that is one stunning bird!

      It really is, but it hasn’t returned. I think I haven’t told the story of the day it appeared. I have to look and see..Ah, memory. As fleeting as the birds.
