I had a few first myself this week.

First Rose breasted Gosbeak to ever visit my backyard. Taken last evening




My first ever Hummer picture. Unfortunately he didnt stay long enough for more


These guys will be getting their first look at the world soon.


Mama started building the nest on our porch a couple weeks ago. We didnt have the heart to take it down before hand. Today there are 4 baby Robins, its something to see so close.

Thanks.
yeah, black oilseed.  I added that feeder to compliment the other I have ( mix bag of seeds) a little over a week ago and its drawing all kinds of birds.

This has been a fantastic weekend for me and my daugher. Aside from the Rose-breasted last evening and spotting the Oriole, guess who came to visit us . He landed in a pine just behind our fence and hid in there for a few minutes. i waited but he he flew off. I still managed this shot though at extreme range.



Then while doing some work on our deck we got these two new visitors. We havent even had time to try to ID them.





Its like were kids in a candy shop this week with first sightings and its all been in our backyard.
