Spring Birds of Northern Michigan


The arrival of the "spring birds" is almost as welcome as the flowers on our land.  I love this picture Mike (my husband) snagged.  We've seen the square holes of the Pileated Woodpecker all over the 50 acres, but this was the first sighting of the bird. 


I enjoy taking pictures of birds--especially when you catch them in a-typical poses.  Here, a Mourning Dove does her morning yoga.

The Baltimore Oriels have enjoyed half-slices of orange, as well as the Hummingbird feeders (yes, we've had hummers, too).  Even on the cloudy day, they add a dash of sunshine to life.

The Red-Headed Woodpecker awed us with his bold color.  He's been a lovely addition to the "nature TV" display at the feeder this Spring.


This is the most exciting bird of the spring--we had THREE of these lovely Indigo Bunting males at the feeder for a few days.  They may have moved on--haven't seen them in a few days, but wow!  what a treat when they were here.
