Day 136 - 20th May 2017 - Baltimore Oriole, Belted Kingfisher and a Tulip

The last few days have certainly been beautiful. Looks like more fine weather for a few more days, than some rain on the way for next week. Won't argue with a little rain after last summer's big dry spell. I got some things done around the house in the morning, roamed a couple of times with very little luck with birds then it was off to town. Had a good afternoon on the Thelma & Louise outing - nah we don't really get up to much. Told Margie on the way home it would be nice if a Baltimore Oriole would appear since the time is right with the apple blossoms.  Wishes do come true - after supper I had a lovely male pop in. Busy day up ahead, working an auction in town this afternoon, have to pick up groceries, company coming supper time. Will toss together a lasagna this morning so I won't have to cook when I get home and do a few quick things around the house before heading off.

 The male Baltimore Oriole - a stunning guy!
 And he loves the blossoms
 There were a pair of Belted Kingfishers flying back and forth in the cove, taunting me. They've decided our house is the fly over spot between the lakes so I can hear them laughing and cackling as the go back and forth.
Beautiful colors in this tulip.

Enjoy your day!
