Pretty morning in May to be working on a nest!  They wouldn't lay eggs this late, would they?

- Are you talking about this visitor at N2B?  I thought it was a female Oriole.  I could be totally wrong, tho.

Oh, of course, you're right Lisa.  Viero are not as big, and male oriole is a bit bigger yet, I think.  I reported last week I had my first male oriole in the yard.  Nothing since then, none of the feedings seem to have been touched either.

Puff - I have never seen one in my yard, but I guess I need to set out the oranges and grape jelly for them, huh?   ;D

Orioles are always a joy to see!  The males are black and orange, females softer shades as the visitor.

Rewind to dawn for the beautiful sky, and eagle soaring near N2B trees, then over the pond -- barely in my pic, sorry to say.

Geese have been on and off N2B all morning, just standing around and honking a bit.

The New BEs are active at N1 and the area. Still bringing sticks, calling as they perch on the Y and other branches. It's a really good morning to keep watching or rewind for the views.

This popped up on my "Decorah eagle" Google alert today:

And you need a steady amount of patience.  It's been 3-4 years.  Threw out a lot of oranges and grape jelly.  When he did come I couldn't shout out to Ton so I phoned tsk instead.  But as I said - no encore appearance as of yet.

Early this morning the female was on the Y sleeping, and an owl flew from upstream and hit her.  She vocalized and then went down to lay in N1.  After a while in N1, she went back up to the Y, brought in a stick and then flew off upstream.
