Thanks, and yup, it's that time again. The older I get, the faster time flies. You know the old saying, "time's fun when your having flies." :lol:

Thanks Jack...I don't know whether it's mum or dad, but you are correct; he/she goes after any bird that get too close to her babies.

2nd weekend in a row at Assateague Island. This place is birding paradise.

Please excuse the iPhone postings..

My first ever Baltimore Oriole. I was awe struck by how bright his plumage was.. it was if he was a burning ember atop the tree when the morning sun first lit him.

Stu,

Profound compliments, thank you very much!

The morning light is just buttery, and if you’re lucky enough to have a brilliantly colored bird pose for you in said light, it’s a rare day indeed.

It’s going to be deflating going back to my regular stomping ground, as this place is just teaming with “exotic” species that seem to beg to be photographed :p

This is from later in the day, so light not anywhere near as nice... a Female Orchard Oriole:
