New Bird Couple

We have a new bird couple that’s moved into the neighborhood.  Normally, I have house finches, purple finches and sparrows that hang out on my feeders, but today, I have a pair of Hooded Orioles.  I wish I could have grabbed a picture but it was so windy out I couldn’t get a still shot.  Also, my Morning Doves’ eggs have hatched and I can hear little peeps from my bedroom window and a purple finch couple have moved into the nest on the patio.  We’re getting ready for the second set of spring babies here!

  2. Enjoy the birds and the bees – glad spring is there for you. Still feels like winter here – no birds nesting yet.

  3. Hooded Orioles are such cool birds! We also have mourning doves trying to nest in our back yard, but they have never been successful.

    It was major windy up north too! Mom and I went out for a walk, and neither of us liked it too much!

  4. I like watching the birds too. We see New Holland honeyeaters often. They come to our grevillea bush. They are black, white and yellow. We see white plumed honeyeaters sometimes, lorikeets and rosellas sometimes, peewees, oriental doves that dance on the roof and some sparrows that sit on the telephone wires. Also we sometimes have noisy miners, blackbirds and starlings and tufted pigeons and even some corellas but not often. Lynettea saw a small brown goshawk on one of the trees in the garden once in winter a long time ago.
    Lynettea said to send you this website address for our birds, you might be interested.
