Pictures of birds, plants and other things in the garden.

If I didn't have the BirdCam taking picture of the Orioles, I wouldn't think there were any in the garden. In the past two months I have seen a few females and just a couple of males but only briefly. So imagine my surprise this evening when I stepped out on the balcony and a male Hooded Oriole flew by me then landed on a feeder. It was about twenty five feet away and looked at me for about fifteen seconds before flying down the hillside. I quickly grabbed my camera and starting playing Hooded Oriole calls from the iBird App on my iPhone. In a few minutes the Oriole was back and I was able to get a few pictures.
