Busy morning plus Two Orange Birds

There was a short flurry of activity early this morning with the dogwoods being bounced all over by small birds that then moved on … had to find the camera and then wait for at least on bird to come into view and be photographed. It was the Chestnut-sided Warbler. Fall migration is getting underway.  Meanwhile, the Hummingbirds don’t seem in a hurry to leave and have been going around the garden again feeding on the plants we grow for them – Lobelia cardinalis, Monarda, Nasturtiums and Canna Lilies.

Several hours later around the afternoon tea-time we were visited by three “orange birds” – two male American redstarts and a first year male Baltimore Oriole in need of a bath. Nearby was another Chestnut-sided warbler and a Yellow Warbler … but they escaped the attentions of the camera.
