I added a new bird to my life time list. It is an orchard oriole. I haven't been able to snap a picture, due to the fact that he is very shy. So I found a picture to post until then. I haven't seen him since it has gotten hot nor have I seen the baltimore orioles either. They more then likely went further north. I know the robins have too. It is getting really dry here, with the ground even cracking. We go from extreme wet to now dry. But nothing like other areas.I have noticed that the hummers have increased greatly, as now I am going through 2 qts. of sugar water daily. So far I have almost gone through ten pounds of sugar. Amazing how such tiny birds can go through all that.
