The fledge is out now, I counted about 7 birds in the back, they are super shy though.

Very nice and congrats on the new birds you're getting. I notice the wing markings on the last shot are similar to some Woodpeckers.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Cool bird and shots. Here we would think maybe an oriole w/ some grosbeak somewhere in its family tree.

They have been here for about 3 years now. They really did well with nesting this year. So shy though, but that's why they do so well!;)
