Two new arrivals for the summer showed up today! Hopefully I will get some better oriole pics soon. I have put up a feeder for them, so have my fingers crossed! :P

Aren't they pretty!!!

I saw Baltimore Orioles here last year for the first time. Before that I had only seen them in pics has kid, and it was almost as if they were a fairy tale of some sort. I was so surprised when I saw one for real...I know, lived a sheltered life! :lol:

I hope they come back again this year!
