Orange variation male Scarlet Tanager
This boy surprised me this morning when I saw him in my cherry tree. Had to look him up since I had not known that there was an orange variation. He like many of these migrants loves the grape jelly.
Female Scarlet Tanager
She enjoys the oranges more than the jelly. One would never know she was a tanager from her color without looking her up.
Love migration stop overs in my backyard.
Male Oriole jelly stop
Lots of Orioles this year. They love the grape jelly and oranges.
We were so surprised to see this little guy eating the jelly that we put out for the Orioles. First time we have had one in our yard.
Yellow Rumped Warbler
This beauty stopped by yesterday for some food.

Nothing is better than when your camera catches what your eye was seeing the way you visualized it in your mind.
