More Spring Birds

I have not had time to be out and about taking photos as much as I would like in past three weeks. I have escaped for a few moments to capture some of the spring migration.

Baltimore Oriole snuck up on me as I was watching an Eagle nest.

They are indeed beautiful photographs. The Oriole is very smart and the wood duck looks almost carved from wood.
