|Baltimore Oriole hunting ants on the humming bird feeder|
So I was sitting here looking out the rear window at the frenzy around the bird feeder (It took them less than 24 hours to empty a full feeder yesterday!) and decided I would just troll through my camera for some of the bird photos I haven't cleared out yet.
I'm not an ornithologist, and find field guides an exercise in frustration, so, I'll put down what I think the bird is but don't beat me up for being wrong.
And I really wish I could upload the full 12G jpegs but we're on a satellite internet connection here with only limited usage allowed before they choke us down to a crawl that dial-up could run circles around.
