My backyard was full of activity today. There was a male and female hummingbird who met at the feeder and were chasing one another around the window. It went on for a good hour or more. The male was in quite a tissy for a few hours afterwards. (The male I noticed is banded. I can see it on one of my photos).
The male and female orioles were calling to one another in the trees and the male has been feeding regularly on the feeder.
Did go out for a bit with Carol to Thickson Woods. Took a few photos but to be honest Carol and I did more bird watching from my back window - between the hummingbirds, finches, and orioles we were quite happy.
