Leslie thought that she saw him too so we put out grape jelly this week in our feeder. I definitely saw him this morning but did not have a camera in hand.
The picture above is a shot from my files. My recent arrival looks so small and scrawny.
I wonder how far he had to travel to reach his spring destination?
It must have taken an enormous amount of energy, it looks like he is at about 60% of normal weight.
But he will fatten up. Look forward to seeing the rest of the family, they have made my Washingtonia filifera their summer home.
And they have lived in these California native palms for ever and that is why they are sometimes referred to as Palm Orioles.
I did have a band tailed pigeon show up recently and their numbers have been scarce in the canyon.
