The birds!

No, it's neither Alfred Hitchcock's movie nor our farmyard friends.

We saw 2 male and 1 female orchard orioles today! Our firsts of the season. I also saw a white throated sparrow, which we don't get as often around here. Indigo buntings are hanging out around here more too (I saw my FOS a week or so ago). Even more exciting, we saw a yellow warbler a couple of days ago, and today, ds#1 saw a blue winged warbler, and I saw a common yellowthroat, all are also firsts of the season for us. So exciting!
