On the good ground are they which in an honest and good heart having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. St. Luke 8: 15

These two catbirds are friendly with each other and they have been flying together on trips to the feeder.....Sometimes I see catbirds as feisty natured with other birds but they must not all be that way as the two here so far have been models of patience and just glad to get something to eat after making their long journey. The squirrels who come to our feeder seem to know they are migratory birds and are staying longer than usual with hogging the feeder today:) That would be enough to test any birds patience.. It has been cold today and these birds who come from afar are not used to this weather are puffing out their feathers to keep warm. I felt sad to see a lot of the blossoms fall off the flowering crab apple tree today from wind and rain... the ground is covered with pink blossoms..

Just a few minutes ago I saw the first oriole arrive this spring and he was looking for some jelly which I just now put out...Hope he comes back before the squirrels find it:)

    Awesome capture and narrative. You know the birds very well and what they want to eat.
