One of the prettiest birds we get to see in the Northland is the indigo bunting, and Carole Lent captured a stunning picture of one on Park Point this afternoon.
Take a look:
I haven’t seen an indigo bunting yet this year, although certainly I’ve heard that they are around.
I have a tendency to see birds after everyone else.
This morning, I finally saw my first hummingbird of the year — it came to one of the nectar stations I put out last week. I also saw my first Baltimore oriole. It came to a feeder I put up on Tuesday that has an orange slice on each side. The oriole sampled the oranges on each side, but it didn’t seem very impressed.
