Orchard Oriole

Orchard Oriole

Not only did we get a lot of Baltimore Orioles in our yard this year, but we were lucky to have the Orchard Orioles around as well. This nice male posed for me and I love their darker color and they are a bit more petite and thinner in size. I hope they like our yard so much that we have them back here every year! Well, Happy Birding Everyone!

Philadelphia Vireo

Philadelphia Vireo

I guess I’m just lucky when these Vireo’s come down to the pond instead of hanging around in the tree tops, or rather I’m lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Either way, this Philadelphia gave me a “hey, look at me” look and snap went the shutter, gotcha! I believe I’ve had other vireo’s besides this one, the Warbling vireo and the Red-eyed vireo, but I’m still learning. Hopefully next time they all come through I’ll capture another variety. Till then, Happy Birding Everyone!

Back on Mackinac! 6/4/2014

Bree's Connecting the Dots

My face is so sore from grinning all day – every day – since we arrived on Sunday afternoon, I will probably have to have face therapy when we get back to Georgia.  At first it was a little rainy, then a little windy, then a little chilly – but we couldn’t care less.  We have been on a permanent Mackinac high, and it could snow for all we care – wouldn’t faze us a bit!

All the clouds and showers and wind disappeared this morning, and it was one of those sunny, crystal clear Michigan early summer days.  There’s been very little indoor time – all we’ve wanted to do was get outside and enjoy every minute.

There’s so much to talk about!  I’ve been very busy with my free lance work with Original Murdick’s Fudge, and for those of you who’ve been checking their web site each day for…

Black-throated Green Warbler

Black-throated Green Warbler

Even though these sweet warblers have left, I still have a few photos to show. I especially like how the morning sun captured this pretty warbler and that he took the time for me to snap that picture. It was a really good spring and had quite the variety of warblers and vireos, along with the other pretty migrants. They say all good things must come to an end and I suppose this had to as well. It’s still a nice time of year, but my intensity of being outside with my camera by my side has come to an end for this year, but I will still be posting occasionally here and there. In the meantime, Happy Birding Everyone!
