For the birds

It is Memorial day and the weather is for the birds. It is one of the weekends we stay close to home because every one and their friend is out roaming the highways. I expect we will cook up a big old slab of meat on the grill later. To entertain myself meanwhile I've been trying to photograph the elusive, speedy hummingbirds attracted my wife's feeder. It seems not only hummingbirds like the feeder but also orioles. Have a great holiday.

When the hummingbirds fight among themselves the oriole pops in and snatches the nectar

How wonderful to see the oriole, too! We only see Ruby Throated Hummers on our side of the bay but then I don't put out food for them, just cultivate a bush that they love.

Ya know, it wasn't all that bad. We drove from Richmond to Napa and back that day, rarely went below 65. Left at 1, came back around 4:30, crazy. I would have expected all kinds of traffic along the 80 and up in the Napa area, nope.
