My Favorite Birds Have Returned

This will be a quick little post for today.  It was a kind of overcast dreary day.  Quite the contrast from the warm weather on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The good news is that the the birds that migrate are coming back right on schedule.  Every May 1, give or take a day, the Baltimore Orioles, the Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, the Catbirds, the Rufous Sided Towhee and the Hummingbirds all return.  I thought with the late spring this year, the birds would be delayed.  It is so exciting to see their return.  I will be photographing them and others more later, but I just want to report that they are back along with the Tree Swallows, Bluebirds and many others.
