Spectacular bird watching!

This Spring has been great for bird watching. We have enjoyed the wild turkeys on a daily basis in our pastures and in the yard. I'm glad they find our farm a fruitful place to stay.
The Baltimore Orioles are here in droves, with the apple trees blossoming along with the maple trees they are just all over the place. Check out one of the latest videos and catch one visiting the hummingbird feeder.
We have 5 blue bird nest boxes up and I'm happy to report that 2 out of the 5 are actually occupied by blue birds. I love to see the male blue birds in flight as their color is just magnificent.
The male Goldfinches have turned from a dull olive green to a brilliant yellow hoping to attract the females. Good luck to them as there seems to be a lot of competition.
The hummingbirds are in full swing at the feeders. I purchased larger feeders this year so I won't be filling them twice a day in peak season (then again maybe I will be) The new feeders hold 32 oz. as opposed to 16 oz.
If you enjoy birds it is a great time to get out in the yard and see what is happening in your neck of the woods.
