Good morning everyone and welcome back to another in our series, “Nature’s Beauty”. Today I will show some of the birds that have come around here this past week and the wonderful beauty that they possess.
The bold black and white of the rose-breasted grosbeak with that bright red triangular patch on his chest really makes him stand out. I was finally able to get many nice pics of this bird after trying for 5 years.
There are 3 males and a female around now. Then we have the Baltimore oriole, a bird not seen often in this part of Ontario. We are actually at the northern edge of its range right here, even though it does go further north out west.
I have never actually seen one of these birds outside of our town but they are found all through town, but still are not very common. They definitely are a joy to see with that bold black and orange color. They really stand out easily in the trees too. They are about the same size as the grosbeaks.
It was nice that in both of these birds I was able to get a picture of him looking at me, an added bonus for sure! And for our top featured image we have a flower from a mock orange bush/tree. I hope you enjoy todays selection of nature’s beauty. Have a sunny Sunday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
