Nice shot, casey! I have to chuckle, though. When I first read your post I thought it said "ripe curtains"

Beautiful photo, linrose. The look on his face says he's about had it with that other guy that he keeps trying to chase away.

Oriole Update: We have had two or maybe three juvenile orioles hanging around for a couple of weeks now. I try every spring with the oranges and grape jelly and get no takers. This is the second year that we've had the juveniles in late June. I'm guessing they are fledglings from nests at a park roughly a quarter mile from our house. We see orioles there on a regular basis. Guess I'll keep trying in the spring but make a note to be ready for the youngsters in June/July.

The geese are flying south and the robins left too.

We had wind gusts to 50mph and I feed the birds but on this windy day I saw a Hawk sitting on a rock in my rock garden.

We had three or four white-throated sparrows for a couple of weeks, but they seem to have moved on now. Haven't seen them in a few days. The red-bellied woodpeckers are frequenting the peanut feeders again. They are here year-round but seem to stick mostly to the trees and bugs in the summer. I've seen a couple of hairy woodpeckers - we usually only see downy's in the summer. And....the juncos have arrived. A sure sign that snow is not far behind them!

Do white throats ever stay there in the winter kat or do they just pass through? We have them here all winter. Love their song. What is a peanut feeder? That sounds interesting. I had a feeder for the woodpeckers that you fill with nuts. It had holes in the sides and wood for the woodpeckers to cling to. I don't see red bellies very often in the summer either.

I only have white throated sparrow in the winter here in NC, and they are not here yet. No juncos at my feeders yet either. Migration is late this year, at least in y Chapel Hill experience.

Juncos and white throated sparrows have been here for about 2 weeks. A benefit of winter
