Look what has taken up residence in my bird sanctuary!
Yellow-hooded oriole! YAY!
He and his wife have been attacking the hummingbird feeder with force. One of the little flower plugs is missing from the feeder, and that is exactly where they go to dine on the nectar. It is so amazing to watch them!
Muted only in color. She is a tough little bird!
The hummingbirds are trying to scare them away, but that’s not working too well. To keep everyone happy, I hung another feeder with smaller holes just for them. So far so good. They are sharing the neighborhood.
Speaking of neighbors…… The people who live next door called a plumber in at 5:30 this morning to snake out their main line. I have no idea what was stuck in there, but there was a lot of hollering. Things like “WHOA!” and “Man, take a look at THAT!” were emanating from behind the neighborly fence. I was awakened by the sound of whirring and men shouting about sewage. Nice way to start a Monday.
