Vitamin O to start the week!
We had the the first real thunderstorm and rain pour of the season. The yard’s vegetation has pretty much exploded and the bird songs have calmed down because many are busy building nests. Last week, I saw the first female Oriole (see first photo), and there is a good group of them visiting. It is funny to me how much they can differ in color. On of these is of course the Orchard Oriole, so it is generally darker.

Nothing to see here, just your average tree branch… or is it?🪵 Take a closer look and you might notice the Common Potoo (Nyctibius griseus)! This master of disguise lives in parts of Central and South America and roosts on high perches, motionless. It has large bright yellow eyes that you’d think would draw a predator’s attention, but the bird has a workaround: it can close its peepers while staying aware of its surroundings, thanks to slits in its eyelids! At dusk, the nocturnal critter begins to feast on large insects like moths.

It's Monday! Which means now is a good time to check if all your bird feeders/birdbaths/hummingbird feeders are empty and, if they are, wash them!
Here's a map of all reported cases of avian flu in America. If you live in an area with multiple cases reported in wild birds be sure to remove your feeders and baths. Most recent cases as of this post were reported May 12th!

I had an exciting Friday and Saturday morning - the Bluebird babies fledged! I sat all Friday, thinking that would be the day, and when my DSLR battery died down and I decided to go in to make dinner at around 7, they decided to go for it lol The first two were smooth and fast, third and fourth had some issues, and number five spent the night in the box and fledged early today. They all looked nice and strong! I emptied the box, scrubbed it to get rid of the poo, dusted it with foodgrade Diatomaceous earth, added some more kerfs outside for easier grip and some more vent holes and rehung it. Here's a clip, it's longer but it shows them all. I hope to see them soon again - usually the parents start bringing them to the yard two weeks after fledging.
