Two summer's ago we had a couple pairs of oriole's but last year we didn't see any. This year they arrived again just a few days after we hung out the hummingbird feeders. They are the prettiest orange color and they really catch Alarik's eye.
One morning while I was getting ready for work, Bekah burst into the bathroom and exclaimed, "Mom, mom! There is a red-headed woodpecker in our bird feeder and that's a big deal because they are unknown in our area!!!" She had spotted this bird that she didn't recognize and then looked it up in our Birds of Minnesota book and was SO excited at what she found.
