    I had a nice pack of gross beaks for two days and then gone. I assume they were just passing through on the way north. The orioles are thick on my feeders right now, I was watching five of them spar a few minutes ago.

    I have not seen any indigo buntings yet but will keep my eyes open. They are glorious.

    What type of camera are you using for these shots? They’re very nice ...
