Two Backyard Birds

Oriole at the hummingbird feeder
Orioles don't seem to stay around, but we see them a couple of times a year on their way to wherever they like to hang out.

California Quail
The quail have paired up - we'll be looking for babies soon.  The male will look out for danger as the female look for food.


  1. Two beautiful bird shots. I never realized there was a blue quail! He is a handsome dude for sure.

  2. The blue quail is so pretty. I've never seen one before.

  3. I've never seen a blue quail either. . .both birds are beautiful.
