Signs of Summer

Although my relatives in Minnesota would never know it (they're expecting another 8-10" of snow tonight), summer is just around the corner. And with his arrival at our hummingbird feeder this morning, this Hooded Oriole is a herald of the hot days to come. While I'm certainly not looking forward to four months of 95-110 degree weather, the presence of birds like this in our backyard sort of make it bearable. Almost.

So nice to see the brightness here.
I'm preparing hummingbird feeders today--maybe next week they'll arrive hungry!
