~Today’s Feathered Friend – “Where’s the Peanut Butter?”

As I mentioned in one of my previous post, the Bullock’s Orioles have migrated north. Some will nest and spend the summer here in Loveland, Colorado. I look forward to their arrival every spring and enjoy seeing them in my yard. I have seen six males at my feeders so far, no females.

~Florida Scrub Jay

A visit to Jonathan Dickinson State Park wouldn’t be the same without seeing and photographing the Florida Scrub Jay.

I adore Scrub Jays and this species, threatened and found only in Florida, is simply beautiful.

~A few birds…

While traveling in Florida I have seen a few birds. I haven’t had much opportunity for birding, because the weather has been so rainy with high winds. The rain and wind has to end at some point!
