Still have hummers here but the bees are starting to show up.  That usually creates some territory issues.
Some still working our feeder along the shore here too. Been still seein & hearing a bunch of Loons, DNR says we have 8 nesting pairs on the lake most years.

Had an immature male Rose Breasted Grosbeak at the feeder today.  We get all three types of Grosbeaks some years but hardly had any of them last year.  Hope for more this year.

Still one lone oriole tonite at the jelly jar feeder. Looked like a female Baltimore. Hummingbirds are still going nuts. They emptied one feeder & pulled on the other one pretty hard. Mixed up another batch of sugar water to refill them.

Still an oriole at the jelly feeder yet tonite. Looks like the same one. Hummers have the life of Riley. Between all the flowers and feeders they've got it made.  :happy1:

Still one lone barn swallow hanging around tonite as well. Ironically when I checked the sheep earlier at the other pasture, there was a dead swallow by the waterer there. Wasn't there yesterday when I stopped. With the cooler temps there aren't a lot of flying insects for them to eat. Hope it didn't starve to death.  :scratch:

 I see The Narrows took down 1 of their hummer feeders & put up a suet cake feeder so they must have fewer over there.

Just loaded up a ram and a bunch of barn swallows showed up. The flies and other flying insects are getting active again so the swallows are more likely to have something to nosh on as they move on thru.

Catbird(s) still here. Just came out of the 4 o'clock patch. Flickers are here today as well.
