Mid May 2018

We saw our first Oriole and put the Oriole and Hummingbird feeders out. They were in significant use by the end of the day. I have been busy taking pictures of them as they visit. Somehow I took four hundred and thirty-three pictures. I thought I would take a moment to share them with you. The Baltimore Orioles, Orchard Orioles, Catbirds, Grosbeaks and Humming Birds have all arrived.

Sharing

The orioles will share with other species but fight if there are two or more of the same species. I guess their hormones are going crazy.

We also had the usual cast of characters around.

So it would seem that Spring has finally arrived in NewMahket. There is a lot more of nuttin happening around here now that Spring has arrived. We have seen the fox with two more squirrels, so that means she has caught six that we have observed. As a result or squirrel problems are being somewhat reduced.

Just wanted to share a few pictures. All for now.
