We were visiting Riverside, CA and stopped by the botanical garden. We saw a few birds and will have to visit again when we have more time.

Im in Northern NJ and I have a few birds like the hummingbird shown above making a nest in my hanging baskets. Im not sure it is a hummingbird though. It has a long beek like it though and same size and color. Im very educated on birds though. I might be able to pick big bird out of crowd but thats as far as it goes. There are 2 of them, they sound BEAUTIFUL and loud. I have never seen them hover though. Could this be a hummingbird? Very nice pics btw.

Baltimore Oriole

Baltimore Oriole

We arrived home to find two male orioles in the yard. It looks like they are competing to see which one will build a nest in the tree by the lake.
This one looks like a juvenile to us.

We were in New York this weekend and did some birding in Central Park Monday AM. It was good exercise after all the eating we did.
We added the Warbling Vireo to our life lists and saw our first ovenbird of the year.
