Can two walk together except they be agreed? Amos 3: 3

Birds of a different feather
Might walk together...
If they are both agreed
When they dine at this deli,
That the Grosbeak eat the seed
And the Oriole take the jelly:)

Poetry by me, AJP

The male Rose-Breasted grosbeak and the adult male Baltimore Oriole are two migratory birds and it is the first time I have been lucky enough to shoot the two of them together with my camera. Needless to say I was thrilled to get this shot through the window today before they flew away.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. Yes, Donald I am glad I looked out the window...The first bird I saw was the Baltimore Oriole. The Grosbeak was hidden from view until I got closer to the window ...The adult male Baltimore Oriole is especially high strung and I had to walk very slowly so that I didn't make any sudden movements to scare them away...I have been waiting every day for the Indigo Bunting and I hope he arrives tomorrow:)
