Happiness is.../Sunday Best

Happiness in a beautiful spring day

This oriole was singing a lovely song -  a very happy bird!


 I was pretty happy too as I am usually able to get this close to an oriole.

I can almost hear it across "the pond" :-)

You really got that very well in the first shot.

Goodness, the oriole is so lovely. It's good his song matches his livery:-)

Oh! This bird is just beautiful, with the red orange color! =) And I also find the shape of the leaves beautiful, so green and full of life! :)

One of my favorite birds but no matter what I do, I can't attract them to my yard. Beautiful shots!

Judy said...

They are a pretty bird. One spring we had one that knocked on our windows for about four days. Not sure what that was all about.

Great shot of the singing! Birds are hard to get close to generally...

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

You got a gorgeous photo! I can'nt get close enough to the one that comes to my feeder to get a good shot.

Lovely bird - we don't have them here, but do get their "kissing cousin" the Bullock's

RedPat said...

What a treat! I love to hear them sing!

Lowell said...

Don't see many orioles down this way...fine photos of a gorgeous creature. We have mostly meadowlarks (at least that's what I think they are) and they do sing a lot. We also have a bunch of Canadian gooses who must have lost their way 'cause they want to stay even though it's getting quite warm. :-)

Susan said...

Wonderful! Beautiful shots!

Stephanie said...

I have never seen an oriole bird before. Beautiful shots!

Michelle said...

That is one happy bird!

Jack said...

I am a baseball fan, so I know about orioles from the Baltimore team. But, I have never seen an oriole in real life. Weird.

Randy said...

What amazing colors.

LONDONLULU said...

This is the first time I've seen this bird! What a beauty!

Beautiful bird, good capture.

Rebecca said...

Caught in mid song! Perfect timing. I usually only catch a glimpse of them in springtime.

Marie said...

Thanks for your comment on my anniversary post! This oriole is just stunning! I bet his song was glorious too!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

His bright orange feathers really pop of your photos.

Rose said...

I put out stuff for orioles but so far no luck...
