Photo (Video) Phriday

I say this and thought I’d do a video vs photo Phriday. I think this is too funny. Apparently the bird is a Blue Manakin. I wonder why they are doing this. Is the bird (light green and hard to see) sitting at the top of the branch directing them?! Is it watching because it can’t believe they keep doing the same thing over and over again?! Well, I looked them up and, of course, it’s males, trying to get the attention of the female. These birds can be found in Argentina, Brazil and Paraquay.

It’s oriole season around here. They show up in the spring at the feeders – especially if we have grape jelly or oranges around. They feed for a couple weeks then they leave the feeders but stay in the woods. I look forward to their splash of color each spring.

It’s coming up flowers around here, so I had to share some from our yard.

It’s fall here in Wisconsin, so I had to share a fall photo. Betty Davidson supplied me with another lovely picture she took  (my guess in Minnesota somewhere since that is where she lives), so I thought I’d share it. Most of those ducks in the picture are coots. Coots always remind me of fall. I grew up on a lake in Madison, WI and every fall duck that normally wouldn’t be there would grace us with their presence. Coots aren’t anything special to look at, they are all black with whitish beaks, but they make a very nice beep, beep, beep sound. And when there is a large group of them, like in this picture, the sound is quite loud.Betty Davidson, coots on the lake

We know it’s spring in Wisconsin when the orioles and gold finches show up at the feeders.  My camera isn’t good enough to get a closeup of a bird at our feeder but these colorful birds are hard to miss. We also had a red breasted gross beak and an indigo bunting. I love when the birds come back in the spring.birds
