This branch is like a popular watchtower for many birds. The woodpeckers have done a lot of damage to it and the top is missing now.

I have been watching the Orioles in flight since I moved here 4yrs ago. I always look forward to seeing their yellow feathers glow while they shoot through the air.

Love the colors, but I think you could have cropped away some of that negative space...

Wow - a Golden Oriole - very uncommon on these shores.

I actually quite like the starkness of this picture with the grey sky, dead tree trunk and splash of colour on the bird but to actually score well you really needed a lot more bird and a lot less sky. Pity you couldn't have followed it to where it landed and do a close up :- )
