My first sighting of the migrating birds that pass through my yard every fall. This is the time of year that I start watching for them. I'm never quite sure what kind they are, but am thrilled, anyway, that they come to my yard on their way to wherever they're going.
This one looks like some kind of oriole to me. It's kind of big and was not afraid of the sparrows that were trying to chase it off.
I think water is the most important thing you can offer them. They'll find bugs and seeds, but water is hard to find.
I am happy, happy, happy!!
