Musings For Monday. #20 Colors.

Good morning everyone! Oh my, it is a cool one this morning, close to that terrible thing called frost last night. I am glad there was none around though, I just bought some flowers last week and do not want them to get frosted now. Supposed to be even closer to frost tonight so I might bring them inside just to be safe.

Chipping Sparrow.

Shopping day today so I will keep this short and give you several nice bird pictures to look at instead of listening to me talk. Hmm, reading my talking? That does not really sound right either. Oh well, photos are better anyway. Unfortunately I did not see my Baltimore oriole yesterday so I guess he moved on somewhere else.

Hairy Woodpecker.

Too bad I did not have an orange to hang up for him to eat on Saturday, perhaps that would have kept him around longer. Apparently they love oranges. I am glad that I was able to get so many nice photos of him though, one of the birds on my main list of goals for photographing. I like to get any bird I do not yet have, but there are certain ones that are at the top of the list and I have gotten three of them already this year.

Baltimore Oriole.

That is the Baltimore oriole, the male rose-breasted grosbeak and the mourning dove which I am showing today. The mourning call of the mourning dove has been one of my favorite bird songs ever since I was a little kid. I used to get up early, open my bedroom window and listen to those doves, it was just fantastic!

Mourning Dove.

Other favorite summer birds songs/calls are the common loon, the red-winged blackbird, song sparrow, American robin, hermit thrush, white-throated sparrow, eastern phoebe and a few others. Still need to get a photo of a phoebe, though they are not a colorful bird, they are one I remember back when in my teens. I need to update my list again, especially since I misplaced my old list. Sigh. Well, I hope you enjoy todays picks of pics. Have a most wonderful day everyone and God bless!

    • That Baltimore oriole is a beauty!😊😻 I hope I can get more pics of him and maybe the female too.πŸ˜πŸ“· Getting the female would be a great bonus. She is yellow where the male is orange.

      • Yep, me too, but it does not look like the female will show up if there are no males around and this male has gone somewhere else. Sigh.πŸ™„πŸ˜πŸ“·

      • Unfortunately without a male singing in the area it is unlikely a female will show up. Thanks Simon, hope you have a great, fantastic and terrific day!πŸ˜πŸ˜»πŸŒžβ˜•β˜•
